    Question Anyone know what these are for?

    didn't think much of it when I bought the car but it kind of sticks out and I cant figure out what in the world these are for. for some perspective, these are on either rear wheel well on the back side, so where a set of mudflaps would be except two of the bolts are on the under side. My mudflaps on the front are held in with these same bolts but I couldn't imagine there would need to be some on the bottom of the bumper as well. Input?

    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Yeah, I'm beginning they were make shift clip replacements. hopefully they didn't permanently damage the clip brackets.

    If this is the case, does anyone know where I can get these clips? I was thinking a dealer, but may be expensive knowing dealerships.
