    I found a nice piece of rubber in the dumpster at work 3'X 4'X 1/2"
    and thought "this would make a great mud flap"

    I used the stock flaps as a template. I made the new ones 3" wider to cover the outer edge of the tire, and 12" longer. The new ones are about 2" off the pavement now!!!

    I found out cutting this material is a pain. A reciprocating saw, and a jig saw dont really work. I also lubed the blade with soapy water and that didnt help.

    The final tool that got the job done was a utility knife with a new blade and some elbow grease.

    I just use a slitting disc in an angle grinder. Or aviation snips.

    I'll second the use of a cutoff blade in an angle grinder. It's messy as hell, but it gets the job done in a hurry.
