I think what u may be looking for are referred to as Splash Shields or Baffles. There are a few re-pop options out there....

https://www.impalassforum.com/vBulle...s-baffles.html

The kit I got also included the 2 up by the radiator and a package of new mounting pins.

================================================== =============


'95 Caprice SS conversion - Bonny Buckets - 96 Column, Shifter and Console - 3.73 Gear and Herter tune - Z/28 Cluster - Blazer OH Console - Green/Pink bushings - Chromed Impala Wheels - Eibach Springs and Bilstein Shocks - Corvette Engine Dress - the list goes on and still more to do...it never ends.

I dumped those OEM splash shields 20 years ago .. reason is they are not rebust and are not big enough to keep the water out of the engine bay.


I fabricated splash shields with rubber roofing material .. guess how this worked for 20 years LOL.. still perfect . also on the cheap ..


this is rubber roofing used on flat roofs ... tough material UV strong .


GM material breaks down in a couple of years POS material.
on my 2000 truck I used this also on the front and the rear .... along with fiberglass mud guards ..

You can also use the thick rubber matting material used between gas tanks and the sheet metal body like all the old classic cars with metal gas tanks used to have. McMaster Carr sells it.

What great info! Mine are all split and ugly, and I assumed I was just going to have to live with it. Nice to hear all the options. Thank you all for sharing!
