Bobbert, ideas for splash shields?
« on: December 06, 2010, 06:10:47 PM »

Since the weather has gotten a little wet recently, and since the original splash shields from Chaz are long gone as they were cooked to the point of being brittle, I think it behooves me and the car to come up with a repair.

Searching in the FleeBay used to come up with some pieces for a '68 Fury, but no more

So, what material would you suggest I get if I have to make up a pair from scratch?  Unless somebody has a set they can pass along?

the Imperial site has some templates for my 73....maybe they will work or they may have earlier years on there. The correct rubber is called "masticated rubber" and we used to get it right from Goodyear. I think we get it from McMaster Carr now, but I would google search for it and see if there's a local dealer for you out there.

So it's not something I can pick up at Lowe's/Home Depot?

OK, I found a place online that lists sheets for $4.25 sqft http://www.rubbertherightway.com/Universal materials.htm

Not too shabby for a company that supplies parts for a Caddi-wrack

I made up a set for my 87 dodge ram from some rubber floor matting from Home Depot.  It's black and ribbed on one side, and textured on the other.  Might be called hallway run?  Anyway about 3 feet wide and then as long as you need it.  Very flexible and easy to work with.  I bought a 2 foot length and then cut it into two 18"x2' sections.

I bought my inner splash shields for the wagon from someone......I'll rummage through my receipts to see if I can find out who it was.

Actually I sold the truck so it's not my problem anymore.... ;)   But in the past I've used really thin mud flaps from Kenworth/Peterbuilt etc.  They are about 1/4" thick and are even better then the masticated rubber they use originally.

 I took mine off since I don't have to worry about too much inclement weather (other than the random hail storm) the extra openings allow a lot of the exhaust manifold heat out and removing them actually lowered my engine temps almost 10 degrees.
