    ok guys,

    Being new to the mk3 club and having recently purchased my grey one which has now had stone chip protection on the front and mirrors as well as a full ceramic coating. My question is which mudflaps to get?

    There  seem to be a few types available and some genuine Ford ones. I can’t have them too close to the ground as I do park up off road at a few hill climb events I go to.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    I think rally armour are pretty popular. You can choose which colour to match your car and we get a discount in the members shop. Il be ordering some soon.

    there is a pretty comprehensive thread or two on here, probably best to have a search back through old threads in RS chat. basically,  you can have Bobcat’s style using std Focus flaps if you want a subtle look, or rally armour ones or Rallyflapz, both big flaps. Only real difference is the armour ones do not go all the way up to that little widget of fords on rear arch and leave a gap ( not to my liking) or the rallyflaps which go all the way up to the ford baby flap gizmo and to me look neater. Also available in thin 3mm Kaylan or a bit more robust 4mm non kaylan stuff and half price to boot.

    mind the ‘gap’  rally armour

    no ‘gap’ rallyflapz in 4mm stuff..

    Bob will be along with his smooth OEM flaps any minute..



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    The flaps for sale on here, are they easy to fit or do they require non standard drilling and cutting. I don’t want to get them if I’m going to make a mess inside the arches.

    daddy, no, they are a piece of cake regarding fitting the rallyflapz, I believe the rally armor are the same, and bob will be along shortly to explain fitment of the oem ones

    The Ford ones are designed to fit the fixing points, the only issue is with the fronts they need soaking in hot water to make them supple to shape the sill.

    331818447054

    Do you happen to still have a link for the ones you bought.

    👋🏻 Does anyone have a pic of nb with the focus style guards fitted – just wondering if the focus black looks as good on nb as dark colours.

    Cheers

    @jeff, Mud Flap part number from Ford

    part No F1798977 rear, F1722673 front. Personally I think they do a really good job of keeping stone rash down as well as dirt. Also I’ve found they clear all but one speed bump (I avoid it now) that I’ve gone over. I have a ramp from the road onto my drive so I needed them to clear that as well.
