    I am one of those sad basket cases that loves a good set of mudflaps.

    What I want to know is did Honda every make a moulded set to suit the Type-S kit?

    I know they did them for the normal body cars, but they won't fit.

    In the past I had to use Acura ones for the DC2 and they came in at £130 but what are my options with the Accord - I really don't want to resort to rally style flaps

    Hi Pete,
    My 2004 Pricelist says that both front and rear flaps are 'not in combination with Side Skirts'.
    Hope that helps,
    Nels

    Kinda what I guessed :Frown:

    Having looked at the FN2 ones on ebay, they look like they would be a close match to the contours, will have to rob a set from somewhere to test them

    I hate mudflaps with a passion .. why have them on any car unless you are rallying! They do more harm than good and wreck the appearance of the car.

    as Nels has already said there was no option to fit them on a body kit or Type-S trim.

    Had them on the CR-X
    CRX4.

    Also on the DC2 - the ones I paid a fortune for from Acura
    teg2.

    The lack of stone chips and road dirt is a massive plus in my eyes. Most of the time a moulded mudflap actually compliments a car IMO, makes it look finished.

    I have to say, I don't like the look of mudflaps. They ruin the line of the car.
    However, mud and stone chips irritate me even more.
    But then again, I get irritated very easily nowadays. :Angry:
