This method requires no holes to be drilled in the car and no paint damaging u-nuts/j-nuts/speednuts. This is definitely incomplete picture-wise (I made these 4 years ago) but should give anyone interested good start with the template/pattern. This is based on on 02-03 cars so newer cars may be different.

Pattern for 02-03 STi mudflaps (the ridiculously expensive ones).


1. Find universal mudflaps big enough and thick enough: This will actually be the hardest part, I haven't been able to a good replacement set for my car at this point. The originals were NAPA brand "truck mudflaps" but they don't carry anything like that the last time I checked a few years back. I hit Autozone and Advance yesterday but no dice; seems like the stores in VT had a better selection. I need to hit an actual NAPA store again or find a plastic supply house. That being said, the material needs to be semi-rigid in order to hold its shape in the wind and not deform over time. The thickness also eliminates the need for the metal bracket used on some kits.


2. Make template and fit to your liking: I used paper and I would recommend this because you can see through it and it helps in locating the holes. Tape them on the car and eye them to your liking. Once you have them set where you want them trace the outline of the fender/bumper on the template and mark the holes (see fastener section for hole info). I don't really remember why traced the outline on the template but I am sure there was a good reason at the time.



When fitting/setting the rear flaps, there is a notch on inside of the wheel well that seems purpose build for holding the flap in place, so make sure if your car has this you take advantage of this built in feature. Basically, you want the inside of the flap to be flush/tight to the inside/inboard edge of the wheel well. Note that there is a cut in the rear flap that allows it to sit back farther when secured behind the aforementioned notch. If your car doesn't have this then the thickness/rigidity of the flap material will be more important. I never got far enough into producing these to research outside of 02-03 cars.


3. Trace and Cut: Trace your flaps and cut them out. I used a heavy pair of scissors and it all went pretty well. Obviously, use as many of the pre-cut edges and use the pre-cut curves as templates to get perfect curves. The cut on the rear flaps mentioned above is done pretty much by feel and use my pics as a guide. Trace the holes and drill pilot holes for fastening.

4. Fasteners are simple: Believe it or not, my mudflaps have been on for 4 Vermont winters/mud seasons (plus this joke of a winter in Albany) held on only by black anodized stainless self taping screws and nylon expanding nuts (license plate nuts). Finding the right sizes takes some work but a Dremel can be used to grind them down some to fit the holes. The front holes are smaller and harder to find the right size.

What real winter looks like...

On the rear there are two holes in the bumper cover used for fastening. Pop the nylon nuts in holes, place the flap and screw in your screws.


In the front there are three of those crappy expanding plastic screw fasteners that hold on the side skirt and trim that are removed. Pull the trim and skirt down/out pop the nylon expanding nuts into the holes (may need to grind them down to fit). Push the trim/skirt back up, the screws will replace the expanding fasteners holding the flap and trim/skit in place.

i would either make friends with someone with rally armors, or, just make a cardboard cutout flap, and spray glue that for a look you made yourself...

I have to respectfully disagree with your statements Evo Killerz. Things like this thread aren't what is wrong with the Subaru community, they are exactly what is RIGHT with the Subaru community.

It's more then just about the car and caring what people think of you "wrecking" the look of it. It is about the people you meet and the great experiences you have while having fun with your car. Not only are Subaru people creative and inventive (garage door lips and cutting board mudflaps, hell McGyver would be proud), there is at least one person in this thread who bought extras, for no other reason then that some one else might want/need them. Try to find that kind of spirit in other auto communities.

Creative suby mods and cool suby people= +eleventybillion
Evo Killerz = 0




NASIOC - its what makes a Subaru, a Subaru.

Not to mention having a lip kit and side skirts makes fitment different. With the DIY I was able to cut them to the exact size I needed to fit properly and not worry about messing up $100 mud flaps.

mine dont curl but if youre worrying about them curling, just find some thin strips of stiffer plastic and bolt 2 of them vertically to the inside of the mud flap

hey man best solution to build up on mudflaps is to buy Armorall Tire shine and spray it on your flaps every once and a while and everything slides right off. try it out it works
