Cheap fender flairs, use a saw

There is a set of fiberglass running boards for sale near Portland, https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/pts/5993889166.html. They are not mine.

Several members have chopped these up and made fender flairs from them, http://www.sportsmobileforum.com/for...tml#post177027

I also have a set of these off Glider's van if anyone is interested. They are silver, but after the butchery would need paint anyway. Contact if interested. All proceeds go to Glider.

I will say, gcvt did a great job, and they look good. But they don't block mud from coming off the back of the wheels as they don't go down far enough.. which is sort of the main point, at least in my opinion.

^ That's true. They don't really work all that well.

Thanks MSD

Been thinking about mud flaps ever since I did the flares last June. They just got lost on my "to-do" list of bigger items like solar and saggy ass. Solar is done, but saggy ass rear end is not. That's my next big project. Rallypanam had some cool ideas about DIY mud flap materials that I'll look into after I get my ass end worked out.

Awesome looking forward to seeing what you come up with after you fix the saggy ass situation
