Correct mudflaps?
« on: August 04, 2014, 10:45:46 AM »
Hi All,

I have recently purchased an ex army series 3 in pretty good condition.  The mudflaps however are cracking and crazing to the point of no return. These are a fair bit smaller than the normal series mudflaps and are fixed to a metal bracket that is tack welded to the outrigger.
Is there any way of replacing these? I do have a set of normal series mudflaps however they mount differently and are a last resort, they would also interfere with the exhaust tip.

Any help would be appreciated.
Regards,

Tim

G'day Tim,

Welcome to the forum. I can't help with the mudflaps, but could you tell me where your canvas tilt came from? It's a top job wherever it came from.

Hi Tim

The mudflaps were the standard Series 3 mudflaps in Australia.  Usually white often with the Leyland logo in the centre and later Land Rover.

You are likely thinking of the quite wide mudflaps of the Series 2/2a.  As for a source of the SIII I too am at a loss.

Perhaos if there is a demand we could have them reproduced.

HI yep they look standard, this is a photo of mine with mud flaps clearly shown

 The bad news - almost impossible to find new ones or good condition old ones

Thanks for the replies - I suspected the mudflaps were no longer made, i will have to keep my eyes open.
The canvas was on the vehicle when I bought it so I dont know where it came from, has the army markings though.

Yes, I nevber looked to replace mine, but even then they were hard to find.  Many have been replaced (that I have seen) with plain rubber sheeting.
