the ford ones fit into the existing bodywork holes ie the bolts holes for the bottom sill trim in the wing and sill i put mine on and it makes a big difference mine are genuine ford i would fit the front and the rears though many of the st ones you need to drill a hole in the wing to fit them im sure theres other ways of fitting them but ive seen many lying at the side of the road so i assume they come off easily

I have found these ones, which look ok. What would the difference between these and the ST ones be?

they would do the job fine.

 

check prices on ebay as i have seen the same ones got for  a lot less

as said I would fit the ford ones as they use excising holes so no messing about with making new ones.

got mine direct from ford where a bit pricey but worth it imho as they will stop stones from chiping th paint work.

ask this person to make you a set:

 

http://www.focusstoc...32432-mudflaps/

 

i have a set of what he is making and they fit directly into the pre-drilled holes on the car and i didnt even have to take of the alloys.

 

similar looking to these:

they will stop so much muck going on your car. i constantly am cleaning mine due to the amount of muck it collects.

Thanks for your posts. I tried the fist link, but it said I am not the correct member.

I think the original link I put up was for genuine Ford mudflaps.

 

Another idea, the two ztec s models in my images below have different skirting. Maybe I could 'upgrade' and get the skirting, plus bumper skirts. Would make my car look much nicer and would protect the original skirting underneath (I am presuming)!

the skirts are very difficult to find/very rare to find 5 door ones unless you modify 3 door ones to fit and you will not find any genuine/ford fitment mudflaps. Lenny has fitted some universal mudflaps to his car and they look good.

Is it possible to modify the 3 door skirts Sal? Have you seen it before?

 

Do you simply remove the extra plastic? Do they look good after such a mod?

I've only seen one set on ebay where they trimmed off the plastic and they did a pretty good job of it so it is possible to cut it and make it good.

Youll be surprised if you look at the tyre and imagine road spray with salt and grit flying off the tyre the sill is right there it basically gets sand blasted the flaps cover that area very nicely so you should keep the sill looking nice for a while longer
