Lovemyhondaeater I found some at a auto parts store for cars. Ones with ford logo were $19.99 for two and plain black ones were $11.99 for two. I think Im gonna pick up for plain black ones.

A sheet 24" x 36" will make 4-12" x 18" flaps. Naturally if you want or need something bigger you need a bigger sheet to work from.

Yea, the universal ones. The basic ones are good for street use but are deformed by gravel spray because they aren't that flexible. The urethane ones are real durable and look cool but you're paying more for the Rally Armor name than the material. That's why I make my own out of polyethylene because it's pretty durable and cheap to replace when they tear off.

It depends on the size of the sheet you bought. The sheets are usually sold in sets of 2 or 4. Once you do some measuring on your car to decide what size you want your flaps to be, it's some simple math to see how many sheets you need. You'll figure it out. If you run into any problems PM me.

While 3/16 is certainly durable but they're more prone to breaking off (or bend what they're attached to) from an offroad excursion because they're not very flexible. I and many others find 1/8" about as thick as you need. In fact the big boys use even thinner one's but they also have the budgets to replace them frequently (like every rally or even during a rally).
