Thumbs up mud guards: a little hassle.

I don't know that anybody's interested, but for what it's worth, here's my mudguard experience.

I live in Canada, so I had to pay duty & GST to get my mud guards imported. With the shipping & difference in currency & etc. it amounted to about $200.00. At fifty bucks a flap, they better stop a lot of mud!

Installation was a little difficult, but not insurmountable. A couple of holes need to be drilled in the body to install the back units, and the clearance between where the hole has to go and the back tire is about three inches. The instructions that come with make no indication of the very small space available; perhaps the intended audience is a dealership mechanic for whom removing a wheel is easy. For me, it was easier to cut a drill bit in half and use the angle attachment on my Dremmel tool to make the holes. Took a while to figure that out.

So there's a little learning curve. I think I took an hour-and-a-half to do the left side, then the right was over in ten minutes 'cause I knew what to do.

I like 'em. They keep the dirt off the sides and complete the natty look of my square little beauty.

I installed the factory mud flaps on my Cube the first of December, they have certainly helped reduce the spray back from the front tires.

You should be able to see photos here:

Default $10 splash gards

Here we go. After seeing the $150 dinky Nissan splash gards I put on these plain mud flaps from Auto Zone. Cost mere $10, Take that Nissan. I use all the stock holes no no drilling required. Just take the push pins out of the inside fender wall and I replaced them with a duble ended bolt (has threds on both ends see pick).
Make sure you cut some plastic washers out to make sure there is no metel to metal contact. Should look like this pic with the plastic in between the metal of the fender.

$10 mud flaps more pics



These flaps cover alot more area to keep the crap off the side of my Cube. I will later visit a local decal shop and have them make me some Cube Stickers for the bottom of the mud flap.

That's a fantastically economical solution. The minor aesthetic deficit is more than compensated by the exponential difference in cost; smartly played!
