Default Custom mud flaps?

Does anyone know where you can buy some mud flaps that are custom fitted for a Bonny?? My local Pontiac dealer says they dont exist, but they also said that about a custom bug shield and I found one of those. Just curious if anyone out there might know of some site??

They don't exist.
I had to make some of my own custom ones. It'* easy. You will have to make up one bracket for the rear flaps. I used bent stainless steel plate. You can connect to existing mounting holes.
The fronts are a little trickier since they have to be mounted hooked inside the wheel arch cladding flare and bolted on the opposite side using a tapped hole.
The best material is a stiff plastic cut out to suit using a disc cutter. I used the 1/8" thick black hockey arena board tough plastic lining.
Trimming the bottom edge with a strip of stainless steel and attaching a flap of rubber makes them look professional and allows them to be as long as possible without the audible scrapping sounds.

Your 2001 SE looks great !

Those flaps looks pretty good too.

Your SE model doesn't have the extreme cladding flares like my SSEi. A flap like yours wouldn't work on mine.

Check the pics out on my flaps.
