    Looks good. Nice and simple install, less stuff to break.;)

    Indeed and I can still make 2 more out of the flap if it gets messed up. I'm a cheap skate haha.

    Looks good! My really old lazer z needs something like that. Just haven't found the time to design and build it. Great design! (I'll probably get a little lazy and do something really similar lol)

    Looks good but the only problem will be on lawns that are heavy shade with thin grass. The mud flap will tend to scrape the lawn on certain spots, but pics look good.

    Thanks for the comments. In the pics it was hitting the ground but with the deck up its about a inch off so hopefully won't scrape anyone's lawn.

    Did you drill holes in your deck to install that or was there already bolt holes there? I am interested in building one but I am not crazy about drilling holes in my deck

    Yea I drilled the smallest holes I could do then used washers and lock nuts to hold the flap on. Didn't hurt the deck or cutting one bit. I asked the question will drilling holes hurt the deck on this site before hand and the answer was no. I'd say go for it made my stripes so much darker customers notice also.
