Splash Guards

Any fellow members here devised a means of fabricating and installing splash guards on/in the rear wheel wells of their Classic?, i.e. to prevent road debris from striking the tank valves and small 12v light fixture or compartment doors?

I've made a set of rubber form fitting guards for my '18 Classic using 1/4" thick neoprene type fabric bonded rubber but yet to install them. Plan is to rivet them in place with a small piece of thin stainless plate at the lower edges of the wheel wells just inside behind the rear axle wheels and use sealant behind them to preempt water penetration. (i.e. just need to triple check, that doing so will not penetrate any wiring or plumbing lines behind the wheel wells - but suspect the 1/4" mounting holes I need to drill (4-per side) will be low enough that they should not interfere with anything). To do so, I plan is to pull the wardrobe cabinet base to inspect the backside of the curbside w-well, and pull the forward dining booth bottom seat cushion to inspect the area near the floor on the backside/rear of the road side w-well before I commit.

Curious what others may have done.
