    Default Mud flap fitting help

    I have a full set of the flappy mud flaps.
    Can anybody tell me the best way to fit them.
    No bolts,screws or clips came with them

    I've put mine on with black self tapping screws.

    Only problem with clips is finding something to tuck them behind so the mudflap stays in place, they look unsightly and as mentioned, they don't hold the flap in place very well.


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    As Taffyopel points out i've had mudflaps on a car before and them clips do look very unsightly, as pointed out above, self tappers is the way to go.

    Cheers Guy's. Looks like I'll have to have a root in the shed to find some self-tapers. I want to get them on asap to try and stop most of the road crud getting all down the side's of the car.
