Default My New Mud Flaps and Custom Floor Mats

Hey everyone. Just wanted to share the look of my new installed mud flaps and custom (cocomats) floor mats. The mud flaps are definitely doing the job of stopping rock chips, grass and dirt from adhering to the undersides of the front and rear body. I had one of my friends attach them for me and it took about an hour and half for all 4. We didn't even have to remove the rear tires because we had a right angle drill which made the job very easy.

Here are a few photos which I took this morning. Thinking about taking some additional shots of the car from the front and rear at a distance. Let me know how you like.

Later!

Thanks... I am a firm believer in mud flaps. They really do help in keeping the car cleaner and the rock and tar off the car. Looks great. Thanks for the info. I will look into. Car looks great.

Looks like OEM mud flaps. A view lower down and from the rear would best show what they look like.

I searched on parts.com for 'mud guards', 'mudguard', 'mudguards'.... and they don't show anything for the LS..only the RX... What might be the trick to searching for these parts, and under what 'catalog'... thanks.

I purchased the all leather wheel cover from Wheelskins. Then had to lace it all around for a nice tight fit. Took me about an hour to get it installed. I have the wheelskins covers on all my cars. Helps keep the steering wheel clean and protects it from peeling when exposed to those really hot days in the summer.
