Mine don't seem to flap that much, they kind of just angle backwards... and mine hang loooowwww.

Notice how they are slightly bent backwards, hardly noticeable.



Then when I'm moving they slant back a little:



I just screwed right in below the stock locations, in case I ever get rally armors. I'm going to be adding one more screw inside the rear wheel well just for good measure.

If I can't find black I'll just give them a scuff with some sandpaper and spray them with some industrial strength Krylon Rust Tough.

Don't. Use a spraypaint formulated for plastic. Regular paint seems to just flake off.

Oh, you're one of those people. Our cars are not holy, nor are they expensive. RA mudflaps, however, ARE expensive for what they are. These are a cheap alternative for a DD. And FYI, these are thicker, more durable, less bendable, AND cheaper than the cheapest set of RA's. I've seen them curled so bad I actually said "Wow, ikea ftw".

The holes are pre-drilled and go where the stock hardware is. "People" don't do anything except line them up. Curving under speed is my point. Look at the pics above, mine don't curve or curl, they slant back which is fine.

Depends on the cars use:

For a DD, yes, $92 is far too much to drop on somethign that will help as little as they do.

For a rallyX/DD ok, I see where you can get thicker flaps now, but people have used these in rallyX and they lived to tell the tale.

Price is all personal opinion. What you think is cheap may not be to others, as what others think is a waste may not be to you.

Looks sick how you have it tucked up. I never like ebay exhausts because the drooped down so much. Do you remember exactly which one it is?

I got it from a friend, he had it listed as an ER-Z
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...12&postcount=1

A quick ebay search pulled up:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ERZ-0...Q5fAccessories

It sounds awesome, especially when paired with an eBay (idk brand) catless downpipe!

He took it seriously...

Do we really need to go buy all those speed nuts, fasteners and new bolts, etc. from Lowes for this? Do the stock screws already in those holes not fit after the Ikea flaps?
