400 + 1. Spent about $15 for the hardware though and got the mudflap from a truck stop.

so i got a question...i like the way mud flaps look, but at the same time, i dont...kind of a love/hate relationship lol..my question is has anybody ever tried fitting the splashguards on their subies? the kind that is more plastic? (more commonly seen in cars like SI's or even every day use cars like toyota corollas)..

you guys know what i'm talking about?

Iv'e tried that back to black and simple green things like that.
Any help would be great!
Try a dry erase marker eraser. Dry, with no lubricants or anything. The eraser is going to chunk but it should restore.

Okay so ikea no longer sells the black cutting boards for the mud flaps it seems like. only redish pink and green is all they sell. Anyone else notice this or is my ikea store just lame?

one warming with the Flapatax flaps....if you catch the flap at just right (read perfectly wrong) angle this can happen.

This happened while doing a 3-point turn, I backed into an ever so slightly raised driveway and the flap took the full weight of the car and busted through

^^^ I really liked the flapatax but I think I will be switching to something a little less rigid, when they scrape its really loud and I've been worrying about them messing up my bumper, now even more haha

I don't think they make factory WRX splash guards for any of the newer models.

I'm actually considering getting a set of flapatax (again) for the winter because my RA's will freeze in the peeled back position, letting all sort of nasty stuff hit my doors/sideskirts.

That sounds like a good idea, thankfully I don't have to deal with too much cold weather but I still really like the Flapatax flaps and am in the processes of getting a replacement. ALSO, the owner has been very helpful with my situation and that to me says a lot about the brand.

DRT Components urethane mudflaps are awesome. Stick out further than RA's and barely let anything touch the paint
