ha ha thats a brilliant name for a thread.
Anyway, as many do, I have removed the mudspats from my fairmont, due to the fact they look f**k s**t.
But now everytime it drizzles a bit, I get left driving what looks like a rallycar.
So, here's what I'm thinking. I'm gonna go down to my garage. Spend an hour searching for my mudflaps. Cut them down a bit, and shape them. See what they look like on car. Then, possibly, depending what they look like, I might paint em matte black.
I'm gonna emulate the BA Mudspats a bit. More molded and not almost scraping the ground even in an unlowered car...
That's my intention. If I don't post again, it's either because it looked s**t, or I couldn't find my mudflaps...

Exact reason I haven't taken my mudflaps off. I hate cleaning my car, and it sees the strip a fiar bit.

Might look like poo, but they are there for a purpose. I'll probably end up tearing them off, with superlows they scrap on just about anything

Meh, mudflaps don't look that bad, and I've seen what has happened when they are removed.

With the boot gas tank, and a person in the backseat, they would make for embaressing sounds pulling out of carparks. All my passengers would be like 'DUUUDE, take it easy, your scraping the f**k out of your car'...
I think they got thrown out now, I've been searching the garage for ages now.. found everything BUT the mudflaps. On the upside, I found an ancient carby under my house, completely useless, but fun to look at.

They make a clean looking car look like sh!t, and yes they do stick out, not just the obsessive people notice them..

I guess if you drive a stock or near stock car or even a pos, then you can leave them on and not care less, aye chunky. :lol: :idea: :twisted:

Bah, I put some vinyl cleaner on mine (and the wheels too) and they all come up real good. You couldn't care less IF you take them off, scratch the s**t out of the underside of your doors and the rear underside.

I rest my case.
