painted OEM mud flaps

Postby JCunningham [OP] » Feb 25 2011, 7:17pm

are the 19212769 ($80) painted flaps just painted 19212550($49)flaps. I bought the black flaps and wasn't to impressed on how they will look on my Victory red truck. Can I just paint them to make them the $80 ones? My uncle owns a body shop so they will get painted right with flexible paint. Or will the duplicolor touch up paint flex and stay on?

I think if you already have them and you can get them painted for free go for it.dont see why they would not last and can always be touched up if needed
I WOULD RATHER HAVE IT AND NOT NEED IT.. THEN NEED IT AND NOT HAVE IT !

I would think that the flexible paint would prob crack with your cold weather, no? I don't know out here in Cali 55 is considerd cold to some.

No the flexable paint is so it wont crack when it bends. Its the same stuff they use on all the plastic on cars. Cold wount affect it.

To answer the original question....yes, they $80 ones are exactly the same, just painted. That's a crazy amount of money to pay for the painted version. I agree...if you want it done, do it yourself. I happen to like the black ones on mine.
