"Interior mudguards": As I did not know the correct term, I took the one
used by the primary vendor, Lokari of Finland
Such are inner, underside coverings for the mudguards/wings/wheelarches.
They used to be made in aluminium, covering only the wear surfaces. For
newer cars they are made in plastic giving a full covering.
There are pictures on http://www.lokari.de/en/innenkotfluegel.php
and better ones on http://www.inderskaerme.dk/
The last one is in Danish, but shows original felt ones being replaced
with much more protecting plastic ones. Each felt one absorbs some 2
kg/4 pounds of water in rainy weather.
Let that be salt water during a couple of Danish or Scottish winter
months and you have a prime rust area.
