Mud Flaps

Evening All,

My wife can be picky about the parts I fit to her 2001 TD5 Defender and I
get a little fed up sometimes paying dealer prices (even a non-franchised
dealer) for genuine Land Rover bits. Example - 60.40 for a genuine
workshop maintenance manual I can actually live with, but 15.10 for the
bloody binder to hold it is pushing it somewhat!

There are loads of aftermarket suppliers out there who are easy to find and
who give good value. But where can I get genuine parts? All I want right
now is a pair of rear mud flaps, the ones with the Land Rover oval on them
and which tear off at the slightest hint. You know the ones.

Clues welcomed. Internet suppliers preferred, and only in the UK please.

Suggestions that I get a less picky wife will not be appreciated by the way.
I quite like this one because she has a Shed she lets me drive once in a
while.

Ta

Be careful of Ebay. I'm still smiling at the thought of the poor sod who
bought four in one lot. Then discovered they were all left hand rear!<vbg>

(And, no, it wasn't me who sold them to him!).

Sure, plenty scattered around the Brecon Beacons including several of
ours.

Great, I'll see if I can pick one up when I go out there in a few
weeks, I've got a missing one myself.

Not Genuine I know but I use 'rally car' mudflap material.... cut it ( just
about ) with big scissors to shape and stick them on - lasts afes and when
it is finally knackered you just cut some more off the roll....
I sell rolls of the stuff it for 9.50 a metre - available in black, blue
or red.

Re: Mud Flaps

Check out Brookwells 01626 833848 or www.brookwell.co.uk

I use them a lot and have always found them to be excellent. I order by
phone - that way you get to speak to someone who knows their stuff. After a
couple of orders they give you a discount card as well.

I bought a pair of genuine mudflaps from them a while back for my Defender.
I can't remember exactly how much they were but I'm sure it was reasonable.

Taff
p.s. I don't have any connection to Brookwells apart from being a satisfied
customer.

What width is the roll and is it expensive to post? Are there any pics
on the website?

The roll is 30cm wide...... no pics on the site I'm afraid

It is quite heavy to post but not so heavy that it costs silly money.....

Hope that helps

might be interested in that. I guess a metre ought to make a reasonable set
of 4 for a disco, 30x25cm sounds about the right size. What do you stick it
on with, or do you just bolt it through the existing hangers?

Re: Mud Flaps

Another 'source' of mudflaps......

If you've got a (coal fired) power station around, or some belt loaders at
a port available, the replaced conveyor belts make _indestructable_ mud
flaps. Full widths cut to length make a great 'floor' covering in the
workshop, too.

The 'multi-ply' fabric and rubber mix is around 15mm thick, a metre or two
wide, a 'roll' will need a front end loader ( so you'll just get an
'offcut'), and bit of a bastard to cut ( I use a jig saw, and it's
_slow_!) but it'll last 'forever'.

Apart from the 'sources', there're sellers of the old belts around. I know
of one in the New England ( NSW) area who cuts it into wide strips which
are used around horse pens. floats and cattle sale pens . I just use it
for my workshop floor and.... indestructable mudflaps on my 4wds !! ( Ya
just gotta make solid brackets to hold it!!)... Oh, and a square for the
floor when carrying rocks 'n' stuff in my trucks.
