fitting mud flaps

Postby el sketcho » 25 Feb 2009, 09:39

I brought some front and rear mud flaps from JK, rear's gone on fine but the front looks like I have to drill a hole. Is this the only way I can fit these or does anyone know of a way around drilling?

Hi El Sketcho,
I fabricated a clamp to fix on wheel arch seal instead of drilling. I used that flexible steel strip with pre-drilled holes. Not sure it technical term? Mudflap still in position after 12k.
Can show you at Fox & Goose in March or email you a photo on Monday.

Hi El Sketcho,

Work demands could mean no visit to F&G this weekend. :roll: So here's pictures of mudflap mounting...

Usual two holes in wheel arch and self tappers. Then two finger size strips of metal are pinched firmly together to chasis cross member like so. If doing this, I would recommend lengthening lower strip and bend 90 degrees upwards round back of chasis member for better security. But not fallen off yet. :lol:

See below...

It's been to Spain & France, Wales three times, Cornwall, Peak District and dragged through the deepest snow in 20 years. And because I'm running standard height shocks sit above all kerbstones.

Cheers
