Re: Mud flaps - easy enough to fit?

This is one of the easiest Stilo jobs to do I fitted universals to the front by bolting them to the arch liner and fastening it back, they fit like a glove. The rears are Stilo Multiwagon ones fitted in the usual way with the U clips they look good on an MW.

I know its an easy job but i wanted oem ones. I did the rears in 10 mins but the oem front mudflaps do not fit a car with factory side skirts. So im asking wether fiat did a set of original front ones for a car with factory skirts. As i doubt universal ones will look as good...or maybe they will, i dont know. Have you got a pic?

Re: Mud flaps - easy enough to fit?

Hmmm things are going wrong now, ordered the mud flaps from MSC, for delivery to my office as no one would be at home to recieve them. Waited fore the 2-12 business days delievery etc....still not got them!

Emailed Mark at MSC about it, he gave me the tracking number which says they were delivered and signed for on the 8th December!!!!!!

Well they were not signed for by me, and certainly have not been delivered!

Does anyone have any recomendations on what I can do?

All carriers should store the printed name (so you can read it).

I successfully claimed against a carrier once because the driver didn't give the parcel to the person named on the label (but the thief did at least have the decency to sign his own name before walking off with it )

the paper was masking

on one of the pics

you can see all the yellow of the bumper coming through and it looks gash so i masked it off and blew in some satin black so you cant see any yellow from the bumper in the arch...



see?
