Thumbs up Winter Needs-Mud Flaps & Slush Mats

As winter prep, my 97 Park Ave needs some Mud Flaps with Buick Logo.
They were hard to find but have ordered two pairs from local dealer (front & rear) as part # below should fit.
Will post a photo in here once they are installed!

I have the rubber backed OEM Carpet mats, but I hate it when they get wet and never seem to dry out properly ( not the best odors either)
For winter Mats I really wanted the GM factory all weather(vinyl) with logo part # 12495303 or 05 as they were nice and good quality. Unfortunately they are discontinued, and none available no where in Canada & Us/ebay. So if some one has these for sale...let me know!
I suppose the WeatherTech (NO Logo) Winter Front floor mats are then to be ordered shortly..

Maybe I should get the car undercoated too!

I was just looking at some Mud Flaps myself today on Amazon, I cannot afford them at this time, but I did look for some to add to my wish list, I could not find any like what you found, I like those!

Those floor mats look nice also, I'd like those, and the trunk mat!
The floor mats you want may be available somewhere online, this place may have them, but if they do they want like 40.00 to ship them to Canada, making two of them around 65.00 total.

Undercoating the car is a great idea!

That car is really going to last you for a long time!!!

I just bought these today. Apparently they're going to have to be cut to fit my Century, which is annoying considering these are supposed to be the exact fit for my car. Nothing like new old stock OEM parts though.

William, those mud flaps new are like $17 a pair here, so check at your dealer as they are a good part # 19213386. I sent an email to GM Parts distributor, hoping for info on the Buick All season Mats. I will wait a few days and if nothing heard back from them, I will order the WeatherTech mats. You will like their quality William. I have the Weather Techs in the Jeep in digital fit (deep dish full custom fit) and the cargo liner. Not cheap though.

Reid, those Century flaps just might fit like a glove without trimming. I normally just use self tapping screws with large head to install them. Ps Like the Pumpkin shot!

Default Installed Mud Flaps!

Got em done on the road using inverter & drill.
Did not have to remove tires or make any cuts.
6 proper screws came with each set of flaps, 3 per side got drilled.

You can see from the little mud splashing (before install) the new flaps will really help!

I sis driver over a few speed bumps and so far no rubbing or anything in turns!
All is well.
Next will be the Weather Tech All season Mats when the arrive in a few weeks photo to come...

Did you order yours William?
If not consider these...the Emblem looks good and nice match with wheels Logo.
I think these flaps will get real dirty this winter, rain, muck etc.
The side of the car should have better stone protection now as well.
I wish more cars and especially SUV'* came with mud flaps pre installed.
I hate following traffic ahead when they have no flaps in the rain!
I would say 85 percent of cars & SUV'* have no mudflaps.
Owners simply don't bother to install them either. PP.

I won't be ordering any till I can get more funds, I had too many extras to get this month, so I won't be able to get any, luckily I do not have to drive daily right now, so when it rains and snows I most likely won't go anywhere.
I do plan to give the car a good waxing before it gets too cold here, judging by the temps tonight I think I better get too it the next warm day I have.

When I can afford to get some flaps I'll most likely go with those though.

Oh man, I can totally attest to this, I hate following trucks, SUVs or anything without mudflaps, they'll make you run your wipers twice as much!
