Fiberglass fender mud blocks?
 
Hey all, I just got some fiberwerx fender and really like them!

But I'm curious what you have all done to keep mud and dirt from getting in the door and up in the top of the fenders.

i don't bother... i haven't washed my truck in over a year... i just hose it off and hope for the best... hahaha...

Ya I'm just worried cause the mud out here is like super glue..not kidding. It sucks.

I have seen some picks of ppl putting like mud flaps up in there, just wanting to now how to bolt them in..

small screws?

Into thin air?

Cut out some pieces that fit (easier in sections), rivet them together and the the inside rivets go through the pieces and core support. The outer part rests on the lip of the fender so it cant fall down but bent in an arc like that they are pretty stiff. I made mine just for the air cleaner inlet, the driver side is open and fills the door with mud

Ahhh it was your truck I saw this on. I like it :cool:

So you riveted mud flaps together cut them to the right width. How did you bolt them to the truck?

That's a good idea

Cr250jumper 07-19-2012 08:56 AM

The ones circled go through the sheet metal core support into the engine bay. I used rivets so it was smooth on both sides except the very front one is a bolt so I could change bulbs if needed for my lights

that looks great.. probably too late for my truck though...

Mxpatriot 07-19-2012 10:16 AM

You could buy sheet plastic too.

Blackdawg 07-19-2012 11:21 AM

Awesome! Thanks JD.

i hate mud and try to avoid it, but after every trip i just get the power washer and go to town

Blackdawg 07-20-2012 01:22 PM

I do too. But still just dirt in general I'd like to keep out. I don't own a power washer :pout:

yes. lol just put some duct tape in there and call it good. Redneck engineering ftw.

ColesDirtyYota 07-21-2012 07:51 AM

o well i go to buggy wash or any local do it urself washer with a power wash. anyway i know in jeeps they get those foam noodles kids use in pools, they cut it to the correct length and stuff it in there fender well and it fits perfectly for them. it might be worth a shot

Blackdawg 07-21-2012 07:56 AM

Ha that's an interesting idea..

ColesDirtyYota 07-21-2012 08:11 AM

granet jeep guys will drill the center of 3 hockey pucks and make it there bumpstop... anyways it could work, get the noodle, cut her down and rattle can it black. it should seal your door off haha

Blackdawg 07-21-2012 08:12 AM

Ya I can se how it would work. I don't like it as much as the mud flap idea..but for the door part it might work best there

ColesDirtyYota 07-21-2012 09:34 AM

true but the noodles is a cheap 5 minute fix. just threw the idea out there, im sure if u put time into it u can make something much better
