    F4 Mudflap - Homemade... and it works!

    Rainy day, so I made a little mudflap out of some thin sheet metal I had around. Came out shiny too which is nice. It should show up in the picture:

    It works too!

    Cheers guys

    That little flap by the lower shock mount? Looks like it'd do well to keep mud off the shock but not off of you! =)

    Precisely! I was tired of cleaning crap out of the spring and off the shaft. It would build up around the seals, which I know is their purpose, but it just made me sad seeing all the gunk there. Negligible weight too

    Cheers Scruffylooking,
    Thanks man

    I would gladly post the template if I can upload it. So simply. Go to your local hardware store, buy 20 cents worth of aluminum flashing, make a paper template (kind of looks like a rocketship when finished) and trace it onto the flashing and whammy. I used a quarter inch paper-hole punch to make the holes for bolts. SIMPLE!

    I would really like to get some made out of plastic, that bolt right on. No sharp edges to deal with or anything.
