Splash Guards!

Post by Doozle on Sun Apr 17, 2016 3:14 pm

Hi y'all. I'm wondering where any of you all got your splash guards from? I am seriously considering buying a couple of pairs more for maintaining my car's looks then anything else. I know some people don't like them and feel they detract from a cars overall appearance but road conditions and such may ultimately determine whether I use choose to use these. I've found a company called Husky Liners that has a set that is a universal fit, I'm wondering if any of you bought that and what you thought of it? GM has many newer options but they don't look like they fit at all Arrow to me. Is there another brand that I should consider as well? Any and all feedback would be appreciated.
As always thanks in advance!

I never thought splash guards were that unattractive...as long as they were tastefully done. Were quite common back in the day.

My Monte had white GM ones when I bought it. They were looking a little road weary and so, I removed them when I installed NOS wheel opening moldings and didn't want to drill holes in the new moldings to remount new ones. Too bad more people didn't use them as they helped preserve the lower rocker/door moldings...and, good used moldings wouldn't be so darn hard to find these days.

Can't help with suggestions, though. Maybe find some NOS ones on e-Bay?

So how many ways are there to mount them? I'm counting drilling (which I'd prefer not to do) as one but what other ways are there? Those are exactly my sentiments Mcarlo77 regarding as to why I would like to have them for those very reasons. I know "back in the day" they used to have model specific ones ex "Grand Prix", etc but those days are long gone. Yes I have been checking eBay looking for plain black ones but I get a bit skeptical when I see the words "Universal Fit". I was hoping someone could simply point me in the right direction (buy these) for me LOL. Again I'd prefer NOT to drill to install them if at all possible. Thanks!

I have a pair of rear mud flaps that I attached with spring clips (for holding a group of papers together). They would be used when I have the car all cleaned up and want to get down the long lane that I live on and assure the lower area of the car is clean. At the end of the lane, they come off and go into the trunk. Also used them at the drag strip so they have stayed on up to 100 mph. Thought about using magnets on the front but front tires don't flip stuff up as bad as the rear tires. But yeah, I don't like the look of mud flaps. They look like an afterthought. Maybe Hurst should make mud flaps too. Thanks -

I do the same with binder clips on the rear if we take a long ride. Roads suck in NY too many pot holes. Try to find the polished stainless ones they look ok and dont take away from the car. Trans dapt made them when the cars were new.

LOL - I did that too!

I have now "upgraded" to screws, as they are now permanently attached.
