Bit of a long shot but....
I’m looking for a set of mud flaps for my touring, facelift of course.
However there seems to be so many different types for pre-face lift, convertibles, facelift and skirt type with only very small differences between them.

Ive heard that some can be interchanged but is this true?

Also, does anyone know the part number for a facelift set?

Lots of questions but it seems to be a bit of a grey area!

(I know they are known for being rust traps- ill just have to make to to keep a close eye on it :o )

I had a set on my cab,I still have them,but a few of the brackets are broken or rusted and I only have approx 5 of the 8 clips that hold them to the bodywork,I can take some pics of them at the weekend.

I don't like them. They trap dirt and encourage rust.

They seem to be a bit of a marmite thing, personally I’m a bit of a sucker for them but I can see why people would prefer to stay clear
