Above is a shot from the rear of the bike showing the added mudflap. The dimensions and sketch for the pieces are shown in a separate drawing.
The flap is attached to the toolbox tray as shown above.
On the RH side a slot has to be cut to accommodate the bracket. (Here the brake fluid reservoir has been moved out of the way.) The rubber used was given to me by a friend, I understand it is rubber belting which is used on conveyor lines, but maybe cheap rubber car mats would do the job.
The flap has cut the amount of spray by about 90%. The next step is to fill in the gaps under the seat, photo above shows cardboard template in place.
Above are the two side fill in pieces ready to fit. Cut outs are needed to access the 12v power socket and clear various obstructions.
Here is the view from underneath with the panels attached with cable ties.
Here's a shot of the other side.
And a view from above, cable ties arrowed. The rubber can just be seen sandwiched between the toolbox and frame. Following are some more shots showing the attachments...
And what it was like before...
