Re[2]: Toby's new mudflaps.

I responded to a "sell or trade" made by someone to the Type-3 list.  The 
person owns a bus but had the flaps and wanted to lose 'em.  I immediately 
responded and closed the deal at $50.  Yeah, you read that right.  I'm 
terrible at bargaining (the street merchants in Tiajuana loved me) and I 
wanted them so I flat-out offered the amount and he accepted.  Don't care, 
I have them.

So anyway, after fitting them to my car it appears that these particular 
flaps are meant to fit the earlier models.  I will be able to use these on 
my (newer) model...just gotta drill two holes in my fender lip and remove 
the two adjustable brackets on the flap (no problem).

I've just been thinking that, since mine are in pretty decent shape, that I 
wouldn't mind "loaning" them out to a shop that could make reproductions of 
them.  They look just like those square Bug flaps you see in the magazines 
but they have some additional material that travels up the lip of the 
fender (this is the area that I'll use to mount to my baby).  So if anyone 
knows of a dependable and reliable place who could make repros please drop 
me a line and we'll talk business (contract, loan deposit, etc.).

How much did you actually pay for these mudflaps? I have had a pair
of them since 1993 and I paid R50,00 (approx $12,00) for mine.
They're the same as yours, part number and all. Now that should make
you jealous!!!
