    reading the conversations about mudflap brackets in the 'For Sale' section and thought this might be helpful for those who are handy with tools.

    Yep, I agree. Got to be Stainless.
    And 316 is my preference over 304, based on it's better resistance to corrosion (esp. from chlorides) as classified by the ISO 9223, and relevant to our Australian conditions as defined by AS 4312 (Atmospheric Corrosivity Zones in Australia).

    I got the same for my Rears:
    With the addition of an extra back plate on the top fixing bracket (meeting my OCD over-engineering requirements).

    And front ones:
    For the original non-necked variety;

    and for the necked variety (if that's your preference).

    P.S. My new Mud Flaps actually just arrived today. Hanging to get home to suss them out.

    Where did you get your mudflaps from?

    SS316 is better for corrosion but is more susceptible to stress cracks and failure than SS304

    I'm sure you are all aware to keep the stainless "not in contact" with your body in a wet environment as your bus would then become the sacrificial anode to the stainless. Not this week is it a problem...but will be in years to come;).
    I learnt the hard way:(.

    I wanted the non-necked type so I had to source them OS. Got them off ebay from this place:
    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/VW-Bus-M...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

    Otherwise had I gone with the necked type I would have bought off MrBubblehead on here.

    P.S. I haven't mounted them yet though so I'm still a bit unsure about the front brackets. I may change my mind and mount the front ones differently, or perhaps not even do them at all. Not sure yet at this point. Keen to see how others have mounted their front Mud Flaps.

    Love the pics of the brackets guys. What I'd like to know is - are the brackets for the rear mudflaps the same as the front mudflaps? We have 2 sets of mudflaps that were supplied by Nick and both sets are the same; hope this is OK.
    Any input welcome,
    Thanks Cherie

    Hi Cherie, the mudflaps for the front and rear are the same.
    The rear flaps only use the bracket shown above and the front flaps on my bus I bolted to the rear of the front jacking point.
    To keep the mudflap in place I used a stainless steel strip and two bolts that I drilled and tapped into the rear of the jacking point.
    Regards Mark.

    Hi Mark, Thanks for the info about the mudflaps. The brackets(Made) as pictured above are great and we will use the same design. Love the Kombi and the mudflaps look great too.
    Cheers Cherie.
