Oh and for spacing from the ground...........
I measured the the car at ride height, distance from bumpstop plus 1 in and then mounted them that number of in from the ground. that way at full bump i still have about 1" of clearance till it drags on the ground.

When I drop it again they will be a lot closer. right now I need to figure out what im going to do with the car, drop it a little, slam it a lot, leave it alone, go for more power. I just dont know what to do, I only drive it about 50 miles week.

I was searching the interwebs and found these mud flaps in black and green. But, Rally Armor doesn't have that option on their site, nor do they have the option to custom color the logo. The green looks Amazing. This is the picture I found. I want.

DVolpe with his Mk3 just painted and put a clear coat to protect the paint... I don't know how well paint would hold up on the urethane ones, but should stick to the basics.

Just looked his up. They look good. And the basics are much much cheaper than the Urethane ones. I did think about painting them, but wasn't sure how well it would hold up. Can't hurt to try. At worst, I have Black mud flaps.

I am in the process of installing the UR+'s on my Mk3. They are a bit pricey and big, but they look RACECAR! LOL

For the rear I had to make a new inner mount, I tied into the factory bumper brace at the frame.

I used a piece of 1/2" electrical conduit that came prebent as a 90* bend. I smashed one end flat and drilled a hole through it to mount behind the factory mount.







Then I drilled a few small holes in the edge of the bumper and used fender clips (the ones with threads in it) and clamped them to the bumper, then just attached the flaps to the new clips.

Spanks Bob, I ordered mine a few days ago and was wondering about the best way to mount them. Looks like I am going to go with your method in the back. Besides painting the conduit pipe they will be identical. I think the RA will come in handy this winter.... For some reason I think we are going to get blasted with snow and Isht weather

Can you mount/dis-mount them quickly? I am planning on using them in the winter only so not looking for anything permanent. I will keep the screws in the holes when they are not on to avoid oxidation. What kind of bolts (or screws) did you use for them? Probably just going to go with a self-tapping stainless steel myself but was curious about what you used.


Thanks!

Does anyone have a picture of the OEM molded splash guards for a 2009 and a picture of the OEM non-molded splash guards on a 2009? Thanks
