Recommendations on non-vented fender liners?

Just installed some MCE fenders (love them) but HATE the way the trimmed inner factory liners turned out.

So I'm shopping for liners. My criteria:

1. Not stupid expensive
2. Non-vented
3. Do not require rivnuts or rivets
4. Provide complete coverage
5. Prefer aluminum or even plastic - don't want to deal with rusty steel
6. No cut-out with logo, backward American flag, etc.

I need non-vented because all the vented ones have a vent right smack where my K&N CAI sits, which would ensure sucking up lots of road debris and water (which is one of the reasons why frankly, I'd like to get rid of the CAI that the PO installed).

There seem to be a bewildering array of choices out there, but I have not yet found any that meet my criteria.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Other than vents, the ACE Engineering liners meet all your criteria. I’ve been happy with mine.

Maybe the Ace liners and make a simple backing plate for the vents out of the OEM liner material.

I pulled the trigger on the Ace units with their 32% off sale - they seemed like the best option, and I like the way they have the additional insert to finish the look.

Now I just need to think about how to cover the dimple die vents - I'd prefer not to drill and rivet them. I wonder if some epoxy on the back might work. Hmm....

I suppose for anyone else looking, I was very impressed with the fit and finish of the Artec aluminum liners. I bought vented ones but they sell solid ones too. It requires drilling but I used regular bolts and nylock nuts, no rivnut BS.

I am running the solid/non-vented Artec liners. Very happy with them as well.
