Schizoragriz (close enough :p) made custom mudflaps from sparco universal ones.

Here's the thread, I think they look great:

Hey thanks for posting this @staax. They are still holding up great btw!

Just use the stock splash guards as a template of sorts and get a piece of metal you can cut with aviation snips and you have some great looking mudflaps that stand up to heavy snow :cool:I

I just ordered a set of rally armor basics. I'll post up a pic or two when I get them in/on. I have the same problem you do with mud/poop on the road everywhere..lol. I wish I had them on right now with all the salt and snow everywhere.

As a big rally fan I can't wait either. Very surprised the wife went for it (her car after all). She enjoys rally as well though.. we go to a rally America event every year called the 100 acre wood rally....it's coming up in March actually. It will help to have the flaps then as you pretty much "rally" yourself...just getting to the spectator spots...lol.

Nice. I would like to do the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. It's fully paved now though but man it's a fun drive.

Here's a couple pics of the rally armor basics installed. I mounted them pretty much flush with the outside of the fenders and they hang down 3 1/4" all the way around. They are mounted pretty conservative for most that want that "RALLY" look...but they stick out a touch farther than the tires so should keep some of the crap off the sides. Plus it's the wife's ride and she didn't want them sticking out any more. Couple pics...she's dirty as hell...fair warning..lol.

Yep just the universal basics. Came out pretty nice I think. I think they were $25 shipped though eBay but they were through and actually rally armor distributor. If it was just my car I would have had them sticking out a little further but will help regardless I'm sure.

Ya I agree...it was a no go though. I tried!! Lol. I had them out about 1" ..she said it was too far...then I pushed them in a little more...nope. So I put them flush and she liked it. So that it was. They will stop as much as the stockers do I'm sure..can't verify though as ours didn't come with them.
