Took delivery of my 2011 SRX yesterday. The Mocha Steel
Metallic color is terrific! It goes well with the Brownstone
interior. I installed four mudflaps today, and added SRX
plaques to the rear flaps. I found them on e-Bay

Those look great. Congrats on the new SRX. I kind of wish I had waited for the 2011 model myself. Perhaps they have a lot of the kinks worked out by now. Let's sure hope so.

A point of explanation may be in order on my license plate. It is
a vanity plate that contains portions of my wife's and my first names
Her name being CHARlotte, and I, RICHARd. The the hypenated "F"
represents the first initial of our last name.

Do you happen to have the link to the plaques on eBay? I can't find them.

Yo Steve ... The e-Bay item is 220565955769. They currently have 10 sets
(of 3) available. They accepted my bid of $20.00! They are well made.

they look great! You may want to consider spraying the rear wheel "arms" black. Distracts from the rear under-bumper view. The aluminum takes away from the pretty flaps you installed.

Good luck with them.

Thanks for the info. How did you adhere them to the splash guard (mud flap)? Are they self-adhesive or did you have to use something else?

They have 3M tape attached. I enhanced the "grab" with minuscule
droplets of waterproof Gorilla glue. (use sparingly!)

That is nice! I was thinking of doing the same thing, but with the Cadillac Crest!
