    Rally armor!! They are awesome :) love mine. Indestructible! Tom(mndsm) has them too. Really gives the car a good rally look. They're a bit more aggressive looking than the corksports and about the same price. Those are the only 2 brands I really found. Although I really didn't look much further after seeing the rally armors on Tom's ride.

    Not a bad idea!

    I was going to do this exact thing. Took the rear flap off toms car and traced it onto cardboard. I even bought the IKEA cutting boards. But then I read into it online and heard of people doing that and running into problems with them cracking when it gets cold. Just a little heads up. It's a cheap way of doing it and ill gladly bring tools to Wednesday at sonic to take off my flaps for tracing if you want. But they might crack and break off when the cold weather hits. Feel free to pm me and let me know if you want to trace mine.

    Tom has the Rallyarmors. I'm the one who came up with the Ikea cutting board ones. Other people have taken cheap plastic garbage cans and used them for the material too.

    Rally armors FTW. Kinda pricy (I think mine were like 150$,) but worth every penny. You can't kill the things.

    Definitely agree with tom. Cheap garbage bins will probably crack also. Maybe heavy duty outdoor trash bins? That would probably work great. Just might not be quite as flexible as the rally armors which could be good or bad, depending on how low you are and how often they would scrape the ground. Just things to consider. Never hurts to try things out. And DIY projects are always fun:)

    Interesting. I have been thinking about these for sometime.

    Well, as a testament to their durability, I've scraped, slammed, and otherwise bashed the hell out of mine, and you can't tell the difference. Also, I watched a bumper mount FAIL on another car before the rally armor was even sweating a little. Dude backed it into a curb and the bumper mount tore where it hooked the RA. They're serious stuff. Plus they look badass and are awesome at keeping rocks and things from dinging the side of your car. Work great at keeping winter sludge off the sides too.

    Are yours the flat urethane or molded? Rally Armor seems to only have flat urethane ones for my model year.

    The Ikea ones hold up very well too.

    flat urethane... like actually rally car flaps... because badass.

    There's the rear ones [​IMG]

    There is the front ones. [​IMG]

    The fronts held up to this-[​IMG] with no discernible wear or tear.
     
  14. My car is too low for mud flaps.

    Doubt they would last very long when scraping frame.

    Rally armor they are about $134 shipped now. Good quality.
    I generally like taking the cheap way but I've learned the hard way you got to pay to play. That is why I try not to cheap it out unless its something amazing like the resonator delete!

    Hmmm, seems like a cheaper price for the earlier models. Rally Armor flaps for mine go for $128.

    Got a call that the Corksport ones were out of stock when I ordered. They should be shipping soon though. If they don't, I'll cancel my order and pick up the Rally Armor ones.

    Tried to install my Corksport Mud Flaps last night... the stock push pins were not long enough to hold them in place and extended ones were not included, so it looks as though I will have to wait for a response from Corksport to see what they say.

    In regards to installation of mud flaps... for those of you that own them, how easily did the Rally Armour flaps go on?

    BUMMED: While putting my wheels back on, I managed to gouge the face of the rim with the underside of the torque wrench... should have used an extension. DOH! Not being able to install the flaps and also gouging my rim... did not make me a happy camper last night! On a positive note, at least I now have an excuse to get them powdercoated the color I want. :)
