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
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.
