Panda 4x4 Front Mudflaps

Hi folks,
Just ordered a Panda 4x4 - in Sicilian Orange! Delivery on the 28th dec hopefully.
We live in the Brecon Beacons and i spend a lot of time up and down farm tracks covering the car in mud. So i've asked the dealer (Hartwells' in Hereford) to fit mudflaps.
They can get rear ones from Fiat (look at fiat-accessories dot com) but apperently front ones aren't available. It's the front ones I'm most interested in fitting. The dealer reports the ones in the link above do fit - despite bing pictured on the Mk2 Panda.
Does anyone have any suggestions for front flaps that will fit reasonably easily, look smart and do the job? I'm not looking for rally stylee sticky out things. I'm resonably handy wtih a spanner so happy to have a shot at fitting them myself.
Any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
Steve

Being a bit taller than most cars helps, too. Love the Sicilian orange!1

Re: Panda 4x4 Front Mudflaps

Hi Steve
Did you get anywhere with this? Now I have my 4x4 I want front flaps too. Fiat don't seem to recognise we want to protect the sills. It seems pretty obvious to me that front mud flaps are for the owner to protect their car and rears are mainly for the benefit of others.

I quite fancied an orange car but my other half said no so we have Mediterranean blue. She wishes to blend in to the background....

If you havnt found any flaps I will have to start looking too.

Re: Panda 4x4 Front Mudflaps

Hi Peter,
I bought a set of these:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1823768534...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

They took a little bit of fitting. There are few obvious mounting points on the Panda - bit of an oversight from Fiat IMO. But they look smart and are doing the job ok at the mo. I've not noticed so much muck sprayed down the sill and up the side of the car!

Steve
Thanks The Panda Nut thanked for this post
