IMO this would require drilling of holes and attraction of rust. no idea about the price sorry.

i'm quite sure the scorpio has holes buddy. i remember one scorpio on the road with its fender cladding off (accident?) and it had holes running along the wheel arch...

I am not so sure about the Scorpio but the Safari surely does..
Saw a Black Safari Dicor yesterday with the Cladding taken off from the driver side door and a big dent..
Yep you guessed it.. It was lady Driven

i think only the side cladding is stuck on. the rest might be screwed on.

I got it done once for 11 K (Original Mahindra Spare part), I guess they will charge you another 1K for labour, they have to drill a lot of holes to get this thing fitted but it is not a problem, I used that car for 3 years and did not face any problems with it.
