Cool DIY Mud Flaps - NW Rain Edition

Gonna keep my kicks clean this year.

Shower pan liner. Home depot.

Took measurements. Drew out some designs on notebook paper. One design was selected and scaled to the material.

Cut out design with utility knife. Used saucer to the right for the radius. (Now has a brown marker line around the edge of it. Didn't tell roommate and put it back in the cupboard)

Colored my roommate a picture of Chia Dog and taped it on their laptop. http://theinterrobang.com/wp-content...g-chia-pet.jpg

Drilled two holes above the existing hole in the fender.

Used the orange plug that came with the stock mud flaps and a lovely green zip tie that I purchased in a multi colored variety pack from dollar tree
