    Paddocks do them, follow the linky::

    MXC6510 Rear Mudflap Bracket - LH

    I have fitted several of these and I always give them a good coating of Hammerite before they get installed.

    Cheers

    Hi Firecat, in theory I suppose you could fit any mudflap but when the right ones are sooooooh cheap, why wouldn't you fit them?

    RTC6821NG Rear Mudflap Kit (pair) - Non Genuine

    Good luck

    Thanks for the help I think I'll order them up and one arch kit someone repaired the other before I bought the vehicle pity they didn't do both. Ah well.

    Someone is selling full inner arches a pair for £22 + postage sound good for a Disco 2 which I think mine is "R" reg. Think I'll just get the patch kit that you showed me from Paddock.

    Sorry not very up on techincal stuff I'm afraid, going to get garage to fit them.

    Cheers mate

    Hi Guys I think mine will need welding as it's pretty raggy back there I had a peek under yesterday not much to bolt on to.

    If someone in the Edinburgh or Fife area can fit it I can travel to them if they contact me I'd really like someone who knows what they are doing to fit it and who better than fellow landy lovers. The local garage might fit it but they charge like wounded bulls for the smallest job.

    Well I had a peek inside the arch today and saw that half the old rusty mud flap thingy is still bolted in place so the garage should be able to unbolt and bolt on a new one quick smart maybe no need for welder after all. Cool

    Sorry if my problems are small fry to you guys but it's really irritating when I cannot fix it myself due to health reasons. Cheers guys for the support I'll let you know the outcome.

    Hi Firecat, don't give it another thought, we're all at different levels of experience and abilities and that's the great thing about the forum - helping each other just for the pleasure of it :D:D:D:alien:
