So...what's going on with this? Pretty much fell through like a lot of other projects :shrug: Not trying to sound negative or an ass, but we all know what happens to a lot of group buy projects on this forum. This is one of them I definitely want to see go through to the finish. Any news?

prttysic: there's been loads of talk about users and this part. very few have it and even fewer are selling it.

+1 for wondering what happened to the project.

Tazka: the distance between the ground and the mudlfap end is good, but i don't like it much with how high the actual car is. more slammage is needed! 8)

@ TAZKA

Those are awesome. But that cant be done to the hard mudflaps Rallyarmor makes, exept for the urethan ones. That's why I wanted the highgloss urethan ones. They are soft and can handle dragging across the ground some times where the hard ones cant.

ST185pinjo-
Oh yeah didn't think about that.

The urethane ones are nice but they should be matte black i think.
If im going to buy mudflappies im going to something like this http://koti.mbnet.fi/carlos/galleria.htm i'd set them a bit lower though.

theUNYTEDone-
Yes, that would help it stand out, but as pinjo said it can't be too low since it's some sort of plastic.

It dawned on me a few days ago. wide bodies dont have oem mud guards, normal bodies do.

will these new flaps match up to the same normal body mounting holes as the guards?

that would mean no drilling for me :)

i think it was concluded that widebodied 185's have the pre-drilled holes for them. there's some liner thats screwed in there

Given my crazy personal schedule, I didn't have a chance to go back there for the prototypes yet. I'm shooting for next weekend, realistically. Sorry, I probably wasn't the best person for the testing (location yes, but "free time" no...)...

Since the fitting was done on my widebody ST185, I can't comment on how the narrowbody cars are different. The holes are slotted horizontally, so there is some leeway in terms of fitting, but not sure if that's enough to compensate for the differences (if any) between the narrow and wide body.

my apologies for not having any free weekends to reconect with them on this. :doh: getting in touch with them again.

btw, in an autocross setting, the rear insides rubbed when suspension loaded on my current taller tire/wheel setup. currently the rears are bolted via two bolts on the fender on the outside of the flaps. we will have to use a third bolt in the middle of the flaps so that it angles back and away from the tire. i think that would fix the rubbing. this is why i need to go back and stuff. but work and weekend schedule has been crazy...

will come back with updates again.

1) let me elaborate on this: the stock wheel/tires that i had before when i initially fitted the test mudflaps were 15x6.5" wheels with 215/50/15 tires. that's stock config. i am now running with a 17x7.5" wheel with 225/45/17 tire. this is significantly taller than the stock combo (i.e. the diameter is bigger).

diameter: 23.465 in. stock vs. 24.972 in. now

most of you with aftermarket wheel/tires are probably running a close-to-stock diameter (plus sizing), so this might not be an issue. but i'd still like to see the rears use 3 bolts instead of 2 to further reinforce it.

2) ...also re: the comment about the narrowbodies having flaps standard-- how many bolts are in the rears where the rear flaps mount and where are they? photos would be nice. i'd like to know so we can determine if these will fit the narrowbodies as well.

we determined (from non-scientific data gathering here) that the ST185s have dimples in the rear fender that show the position of where the holes need to be drilled for stock or aftermarket mudflaps. we are currently using 2 of those dimples/holes. and i'm going to request we use a third bolt that is currently holding the fender liner to the body, about 3 inches in from the edge of the fender to "pull" the flap back so that they don't rub on tall tires like the ones i'm running.

3) i'm planning to go over there either tomorrow night or next weekend on sunday. this is due to my autox schedule this weekend and other personal things i have to take care of.

Here are some pics of the screws holding my front and rear mud guards on.

I made some very rough measurements of the distances between the screws.

I have Rallyarmor mudflaps on my Impreza and I must say it's a very great stuff! 8)
it's very nice that they come with pre-drilled holes and all needed mounting pieces
and they do change (improve! :D ) the look of the car

this year I've decided to put some mudflaps on Celi too... because after our lithuanian winter (a lot of solt on the roads :cry: ) I had to do some body repair
so with pain in a heart I drilled some holes in the rear fenders and put some Sparco mudflaps on my bee... the result is here :)
