Ordered back on April 26th, they arrived today. Good condition, very light surface rust like shown in the photos. Size is just a little smaller than the Ural Shop metal mudguards, probably the same size as the Ural plastic ones.

They look sleeker than the Dnepr version Yuri sells and no reflector hole.

Gonna prep and paint 'em this weekend.

Looks like the mounting brackets might be more robust than the Dnepr ones too?

Hey Barry,

Dunno about the Dnepr brackets, these are solid.

They don't come with hardware but I've got plenty of that. The mudguard metal is a little thinner than the Ural Shop but also stamped vs smooth. I like the stamped look, it's a nice accent.

These will be going on the Retro, Gear-Up's got the Ural Shop version and those are nice but more $$$

The Dnepr brackets are thinner and more flexible than the Ural brackets. I used Ural brackets to mount the Dnepr guards on my Patrol.
