Mud flat mod
« on: April 07, 2013, 07:10:46 AM »
Ok, so the mudflap I installed was turning inward and getting caught on the rear tire.

I took a piece of soft metal from a fake license plate and screwed to the back of the flap. Now it is more sturdy and I was even able to bend it a little at the edges just so that it is not flat.

here are pics of the back of the mud flap and its new shape installed.

While I am here, I put some screws, nuts, and rubber/metal washers to install the front fender extender.
the funky plastic rivet-like fasterner (or whatever the hell they are) seemed too junky to me.

Its called trial and error my old friend.

Hey Ndo why would you not have glued the front extenda to the fender ?

Good question BTbay,

I glued the one I used for my C14 because those were the instructions...but I also bolted it.

This one, if you order one from Trump, comes with some very funky 'press-plastic-rivets'. First of all, I could not figure out how to press the rivets together. I suspect you need some kind of rivet pressing tool...and even if I could, I did not trust that would be the appropriate strength to hold the extender on...bolt on! and done.
