Are those rear mudflaps fitted correctly? They seem to be dragging on the floor when your car's in flacid position

nothing worse than scraping your flaps now is there :D

I love the boot spoiler on these ( same as my TRS 's had , wish I could find one, I think it would suit the meteor much better than the pram handle

Yea, I have noticed that. I haven't looked to see if it's the mudflaps fitted too low, or if the bump stops at the rear have collapsed. The back end does seem lower than the front when in low.

I too love the spoiler, and I bet it weighs nothing, it's foamy like stuff. Mine has come unstuck at the drivers side most edge, pretty sure I have some double sided sticky foam stuff left from doing the astra's door moulding protectiony things.

Really, really excited about spending more time with her and getting her all ship shape! Less than 2 weeks until then...

I have said it many times before! I was bi, leaning towards straight before i met my Steve. I even had a girlfriend of 2 years when I met him - that wasn't a pleasant time.... But when you meet the one, you know it.

Nice Flaps :wink: , if fitted correctly they shouldnt scrape, recently fitted four two my GT and it involved measuring and a template etc. The rear spoiler weights bugger all!


Your rear end looks fine to me.....

Rear ones are a bit broken, they have been bent so much that they have split almost all the way along the fold line. I shall have to source replacements for the rear two I think (eventually!).

My flaps just touch the floor when squatting - I don't worry about it, I think it's a design fault.

behave please chaps! its all about getting the length right (from floor to bottom of the flap). Best way to fit them is to attach them loosely, drop the suspension and adjust so they sit a couple of mm from the floor. The "countoured ones" are correctly spaced and fit perfectly.

Tsk. Smut just seems to follow me around... Nothing to do with me of course :roll:

I will just have to get new flaps, and this time make sure they are correctly arranged. I don't do fucked flaps, so these rear ones will have to go!

It sounds adjustable... Hmm, now there's a thought! An adjustable anything is better than a fixed anything. So we want size, girth, knowledge of use and adjustableness - the list is getting longer :(
