There is also a vendor on the other forum that sells spats made from clear 3M material. I have them on my car. They work great and he sells them cheap.

Do you have a link to that vendor, or to the other forum (not sure which one you mean).

The ones Brian made were aluminum and I don't think he makes them anymore. I paid for a set and then waited a year for them. They were really nice but didn't fit well on my Mk4 so I sold them. I wish I hadn't.

yes, the link is in my signature, it prints out 1:1 on a three-page .pdf.

but i was thinking of making a bigger one, that goes higher up on the fender. that's the easy side, you can always expand it yourself.

so far, nobody has told me how well the spat template fits on a MK4, should be about the same though.
