Lets see whos got what and why....please provide technical info (mounting techniques etc...)
what- auto zone splash guards

Haha, of course!
Taking advice from a fellow DI member, I bought these bad boys from Ikea. Then I actually saw the video Aaron made and bought some similar hardware from the local hardware store and used the same method as newbie101, "drill and screw". Total cost: about $13.
I've been waiting for these to fall apart to get some urethane mudflaps but these have been holding up pretty well.

I have the red ones on my RS, they can be cut to look pretty or bolted right one. Has done a world of good to protect what is left of my paint!
bought at "Tap Plastics" and made a templet with cardboard. cut and screwed..
bah! i put mudflaps on my STi to keep it pretty, since the sticky tires pick up anything on the street. but the legacy, which is actually used in rallyX has no mudflaps...they would keep my car too clean. and it's not like the paint is in stellar shape anyway.
EDIT: i put the rallyarmor UR flaps on my STi, since i am hoping they will last a few years. i just used aaron's hspn videos for the install. more time-consuming than i thought it would be, but certainly not a difficult install.
What: RallyArmor UR's
When: ~2 days after I bought the car
Why: Black car + Subaru paint = :(
How: Followed the instructions & used their hardware, seems to be holding up fine (1 winter, a few gravel runs)
material purchased on ebay for super cheap
brackets, made them myself
used generic hardware to install
who you callin a "garage queen"? personally i just made mine with a stiffer material and let it hang off the edge like in the above pics...
I RA basics on both cars. The ones on the WRX are a little beat, so I may go with big floppy "GroupB" style flaps eventually. But I went with the RA basics because I like the flat black look, and really, I know they're pretty tough.

Katnip, our UR setup is an incredibly strong application and the perfect choice for a rally/cross especially during wintry conditions. Its flexibility in extreme cold, lowered conditions (as well as abusive environments) is key:
It is the same type of material we provide for the motorsports teams we work with:
R/A Motorsports type setup:
