Saw a set on eBay from a dealer for under £60 so took a punt. They've arrived and have instructions but I'm just asking if anyone has fitted a set and got any tips/warnings about the process before I have a go this weekend?

Thanks
 

Seriously?

No specific experience with these, but as a general tip if the front ones are 'conformal', ie. if they fit tightly to the sills/front wings, then a good idea is to protect the paintwork with helicopter tape before fitting them as over time grit can get between the bodywork and the mudflap which can cause paint damage and potential rusting.

Did you fit them? Your thoughts, would you recommend?
No, missus had the car for work and since lockdown the weather has been so bad I haven't managed yet. I thought they'd just clip on but the instructions mention using a drill, so might have to jack it up etc to get room and wouldn't mind a bit of sun first!
