    Default Mud Flaps

    Hi guys
    ,
    Just bought some front flaps for my R61. Came with pack of retaining screws and what feel like plastic rivets. I'm presuming I need an appropriate tool for the job, or would hand held rivet gun suffice?

    Thanks for any help/ advice.

    Hand held should work. Just don't drill holes to big..

    By the looks of things, I don't think I need to drill. Just need to pop the existing retainers, and fix new ones in place. Or that's what I'm hoping...

    Finally fitted the flaps... They weren't rivets, just expandable retainers with the core exposed. Good fit so far, and hopefully stop all the crud up the side of the car.

    Iím a big fan of mud flaps, I think they look great and serve a purpose, I fit them to almost every car I buy, mini said the mud flaps donít fit the F56 JCW, they were wrong
