I still have my oem 4x4 flaps surprisingly in excellent condition on my hb, but I would like to find a good oem rear set because i accidentally sprayed a little degreaser on the flap and went to wipe it off and the darn 4x4 in white came off! I beat myself for this

Just reading through this and had an idea. I used this company to make my custom snowmobile flaps, but they mostly do truck mud flaps/splash guards. They made my snowmobile flap custom, I would bet if the measurements were sent over to them they could make OEM replicas. The owner was a super friendly guy that was very helpful. Here is the site. http://www.provendesignproducts.com/

Could you tape it and re paint with a vinyl or plastic paint?

You should ask what he'd charge to crank out, like, 10 sets.

I actually want to make some mud flaps that incorporate fender flares into them.

The flares I have aren't really working to keep the mud off the truck. I was thinking about making some flares that were a little bit wider, bolted into the fender lip, and extending down into mini-mud flaps.

I just need a set of those damn little metal brackets.

Anybody got a set?

I have a rear one off a Pathfinder. The other rear side is MIA. It's got the Nissan on it and everything.

I took the front ones off for my truck.

Well, I wouldn't know how to make the others. Guess I'll have to hang on a while.

To me they looked the same. But that's of course when they're covered in mud. Mine used the bottom three bolts on the inside of the fender, you know, how the flares and splash guard attach.
