Where to get rock guards?

I want to install two aluminium rock guards on the front of our 21ft 1996 Sovereign. I enquired with the local dealer and they said it would cost $500 for the pair + shipping, and another $450 for installation--basically $1000 all told. I'm pretty practical, but absolutely don't want to get in over my head and rivets intimidate me! Firstly, the parts seem expensive. Any ideas about other sources? Secondly, is the installation straightforward, or should I let them do it? I appreciate any suggestions. Cheers, Nick

Forum member Smily had a pretty good solution in this thread. He chimes in at post number 3.

The panels that protect the front quarter panels are called "segment protectors".

They are made from stainless steel, not aluminum. They also do sell for over $500.00.

However, any ordinary (non lazy) mechanic can install the pair in 45 minutes or less.

A quote of $500.00 labor tells me that that shop doesn't know how to do it and/or, they want to retire early, at your expense.
