Default #1 way to keep body clean in winter

Aside from being stored, and not driven, i've found my mudflaps to be absolutely great. About $25 for the pair, and I've kept my lower panels virtually snow/salt free since my last wash (3 weeks of snow ago!). They also make it easy to kick the snow off, just a kick on the lettering sends the snow to the ground.

Then there'* my brother, who'* got mudflaps built of snow that go a foot back on the Nova. I couldn't kick them off, they were too frozen. But i won't show you that.

Yeah, i saw ones like that over at the dealership...might be a good investment...
I bought these for my park avenue a year ago for 10 bucks over at Canadian tire

Never installed them though...lol and forgot to include them with the car, so when i move out my dad inherits them!
There is Pontaic ones like that there as well.

The pontiac dealer in applevalley. They were 12-13 a pair i think. They are semi molded, which gives them a good balance between rigidity, and flexibility if something hits them.

$12-13 per pair or for all 4? I got mine last spring for $7.50 a pair at the local Pontiac dealer here in Sauk Centre. I had two pairs on my 1992 SE and I had only paid about $6.50 a pair back in 2001. If you paid $12-13 per pair (2) you got jipped.
If you are gonna pay that much per pair get the part # and go to www.gmpartsdirect.com and get them shipped to your door.
