    You can buy carbon arch lips that protect the rear aches from stone chips etc

    I would recommended trying small lips (maybe clear plastic/perspex) to see if it is effective.

    I suppose it's a bit extreme. I spend a fair bit of time over by Kinver and the Clent hills visiting people's homes so in the last week/600 miles the car is just caked in road grit, mud and is generally hanging. The rain has cleaned it off a bit but mudflaps would protect it more.

    It's mainly the front wings.

    You could always fit four space savers.

    I made a front set for mine! (don’t laugh) My old C63 really suffered from stone chips down the flanks, so I thought this was a good idea. I have made a couple of sets before for my old track cars and they have always worked well.

    This was my first attempt on the 63 and the angle is not quite right, so I am going to make a MK2 set when the weather improves.

    You can see on the second picture how well they work, that was only about 10 miles after I cleaned the car!

    The only trouble is the inner liner isn’t quite flush to the wing so the mud flap follows the arch liner rather than the wing and doesn’t look as good as it has on other cars.
