    Default Mud flap material?

    I'm sure there is a tread somehwhere? what is the mud flap material and where can I get it from in the Boston area? I'm using the Sparco flaps at present but they fall off easy and at $20 a pair not cheap!
    Cheers,

    They can be expensive. Go to your local 18 wheeler repair shop and get some of their old mud flaps and cut them up.

    I buy brand new white NAPA truck flaps for just under $20 each. Cut into 4 pieces and you have 4 mud flaps!

    My production sport Mazda has used the same set of Rallylights.com flaps for 8 years now.

    I just made fresh ones to match the new paint, super easy material to work with, and I made two flaps from each piece that they call a mudflap.

    +1 for Susquehanna's urethane flaps, very strong, and easy to work with but a tad expensive, +/- 80 for four(I made 'em big!), I too am going to look a some truck flaps for my daily driver.

    5X10 of LDPE in Denver is about $68 a sheet. You'll get about 10 flaps out of it and can use it for other stuff. I've seen it as low as $25 a sheet. Only comes in white.
