Fender mudflap ideas

#1
Anyone got any good DIY mudflap ideas? So far I've heard of flex cutting board, flexi mat style sled, and rubber stair riser. Do you guys have something that you swear by? My bike has a front fender but it only extends down to the 180 degree line. I'd like to extend that down to almost 235 degrees around.

Thank you much.

No, it is just the stair tread, cut to the right size and bolted on to my fenders. They are stiff enough to keep me & the people behind me dry and flexible enough to bend away at curbs. No flapping that I have noticed. The work way better than I had anticipated.

No I did not use any duct tape, just drilled 3 (1/8) holes per fender and used aluminum rivets to attach the mud flaps to the fender.
I think the confusion is you suggested using a soda bottle, but your photo shows a flap made of something very unlike soda bottle plastic?

Yes you are right, did not even think about it till you pointed it out.
So I made mine out of rubber mat that is used to put in tool chest to stop tools from sliding around, however you can make it using a soda bottle instead.
@christob Thank you.
