Getting ready to pull the engine/trans for complete overhaul. After 44 years all of the rubber mud flaps (don't know what else to call them) in the engine bay are bridle, cracked
and/or deformed. These rubber flaps are around the radiator, cover the suspension connections and even have some in the rear of the engine bay just forward of the doors.

I'd like to replace them all but don't know what to call them or where to obtain new ones. Can these things be purchased in sets? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Steele Rubber has them pre-cut. As for the clips; I pressed in thread busses in the holes so I could use stainless steel bolts instead.

You can also try OPGI.com or Rubber the right way. I suggest you don't remove the old ones until you have the new ones on hand and ready to replace. On my '70, it took a while to get mine installed as I didn't have any to replace (they were gone).

Done. Got a set from Steele Rubber, who also has several helpful how-to videos. Cadillac Forum did it again; I went from not knowing what to call them to ordering what I needed. Thanks for the responses.

Glad to be of help! What color is your convertible?
