Mud Flap Reflection Correction

Mud Flap Reflection

When the two red reflector strips came unglued from my motorhome’s mud flaps, I found they were not available separately. I made a permanent fix by attaching scrap aluminum strips using stainless steel bolts and nuts where the original plastic units had been glued on. The aluminum is a bit larger to hide the failed adhesive, and has a Department of Transportation-approved red reflective tape permanently anchored to it. Most auto supply stores carry the tape in red and silver. The repair looks original and is even more reflective than the plastic it replaced.
