They are really easy if you have all the oem stock mounting tabs. What I did was get a set of the GGSX front doglegs with molded mud flaps and used them as a template. I pulled the mounting tab from those and mounted them to the new mudflap with rivets and painted those to prevent future rust.



Getting old sucks ... but it sure beats the alternative !!!

Those are super nice, but damn they're expensive.

A lot of the rally guys I know either buy pairs of semi mudflaps at the local truck stop (for like $20 or so), or buy raw sheets of HPDE or similar, and then cut them down. Of course, the rally guys I know are probably tougher on mudflaps than the usual street car.

Be sure to post pics when you get em installed. I'm interested in seeing them on a Galant. My plan has always been to snag a couple pairs at a Mitsubishi Fuso dealer so I might be able to get a Mitsu logo on at least one of them.

Damn, looks like they got rid of the cheap version and are only selling the higher priced version. That sucks I wanted to get the unmarked cheap version.

Might just be a subaru thing but I heard that you can cut up Ikea cutting boards and the look great and work even better.

LOL. So looks like a cutting board. I guess it makes it convenient if you need to cut up some fruit or veggies if you are on the go

I really like the flaps look.
Some of these guys forget our cars were made for WRC.
I might have to grab some of these...or maybe those faux Ralliart ones.

He is parked where the road/parking lot has been plowed. There is only about 24" on the ground, in these parts.


I dont need the flaps because I dont want to drive in the snow or dirt, money is no problem. And cleaning a foot of snow and ice off my beloved car is something I dont want to do.

whats the point of flaps at the track? or in the heat of summer? looks are sure not there. And if it looks good, why werent they factory?

I can't tell the difference between the ikea rally ones and the rally armor ones, really.

As soon as I get back in town I will snap a few of them. I'll check, but I don't think I have any on my phone. Even if I did though, I'm not real sure how to post pics off my iPhone.
