Very nice. I was recently considering getting red Rally Armor flaps for my WRB WRX. I like the look, but I think it is a bit too flashy for my DD. A car with the right style, e.g. yours, really pulls them off though.
Thanks a lot. It's also my DD. people ask why red all the time. Its just different I guess. But I like it so that's all that should matter.

What color is your car? Maybe red would work.

My car is (going to be, currently on order) 2012 World Rally Blue (WRB). I think I might just go with red lettering. I think if I had red accents all around, like red accented wheels etc, I might go full red; but I don't feel like spending money on accessories just yet.

Oh nice. Any changes for the 2012? I've been thinking about producing some mud flaps. Not sure yet though.

the 2011 and 2012 are the exact same aside from headlight housing and stock radio.

Those look to be well made, just way to bright for my tastes.

Oh good to know.

I made these. We've been thinking of producing some black ones and possibly selling them for a nice price. I didnt want them to hang low since its my DD. speed bumps and drive ways would scratch it if it were any lower so I decide to make my own and make them a little higher. I also didn't want it to stick way out.

Please decided to make some I will be the first one on the order list. This is a way better alternative to RA. You read everywhere that people dont really like them at first and then they get used to it. I was thinking about buying some black ones and cutting them but this would be a much better option. Hopefully cheaper and looks way cleaner.

I'll definitely let you know! It's actually in the process so I'll see how it goes. Hopefully not too long.

And it'll be in black =]

Hey mike, I'm interested in your mudflaps. they poke out less than the rally armor ones and are exactly what i'm looking for, could I pay you to fab one up for my 2012 wrx sedan? or could u make a DIY, either way would be great.

There isn't one.....it is DIY cause the OP did it himself....he never made any how-to on it.

Go to ikea and buy some placemats...go to lowes and buy some bolts and a box cutter and get to making.

In all seriousness, you will be hard pressed to make them (mud flaps, mounting hardware, and brakets) for less than $50....and for that you can get Flapatax.
