It all depends on States laws. each one is different. Some states you got to have fenders, others you don't. We can run without fenders where I live.

Real hot rods don't have fenders,,,j/k I think like Henry says depends what state I've been asked that a couple of times,built mine without fenders cause none came with it, 5 years ago. Never have been bothered, heck had a nice conversation with a highway patrolman once at a ice cream shop , he just said " Nice car ,have a nice day". But then again if you do get stopped for something " illegal" and the officer doesn't have any humor could be different.

Sorry, I don't have an answer for you that is any better than the previous. I just wanted to say "Hey" from another VW guy!

It seems that a lot of the police officers will let it slide if the car is nice and not a rolling clunker. Just my experience.

Bug-on

If you are making a spectacle/butt of yourself and you get stopped, they will write everything they can. If you are a butt, they can/will call the DOT boys to inspect everything from tire tread, headlight height, etc.

Even if it is legal, (most EVERY state requires fenders or mud flaps/ tires cannot stick outside the fenders, a-la 70s),

it often turns into a tell-it-to-the-judge situation. You LOSE, and then you have to fix it, and then they are watching for you to screw up again.

I only know of one who got a ticket. He was a smart mouth 20 yr old in a bright orange car, no mufflers, no insurance, no license plate, showing his *** smokin the tires,

and he ended up selling the car a week later to get the perpetual cops off his ***.

It cost him $ 800 anyway.

In Canada it is illegal in every province to drive without fenders. There are a couple of T buckets around here with no fenders. One is a customer transport for a local garage. As long as you are not leaving a rooster tail in the rain or throwing rocks through windshields. The police seem to look the other way.

For something that minor, I would find out how illegal it is by driving without fenders. Even if it is illegal I doubt anyone stops you frequently.

That's kind of like the promiscuous girl that went with every guy, to see HOW pregnant she could get.

I am sure that any local cop can check it out for you.

Local cops can ??? ...... LOL..... not in this neck of the woods...

You'd have to find a DOT Trooper,

but I wouldn't go see him driving in it, he might be in the mood to give you a "fix-it-now" warning.
