    Default my e36 custom skid plates. trial and error tested for over a year.

    I've been I the process over a year testing my skid plate. fixing the errors and finding
    out where the flaws could be.
    duplicated my skid plate yesterday and selling this one now,

    comes with the nurserts that need to be installed in the subframe with the Allen bolts that fit flush in the skidplate do the heads don't get worn down, the holes are countersunk, I also provide a 3/8 thick 3x16 aluminum spacer that goes In between the skidplate and subframe. the skid plate sits up higher then an xbrace. xbraces end up bending into your oil pan and eventually will crack your pan. skidplate has about 1/4 inch or more clearance from the oil pan. the rear of it bolts directly to your frame rails. messag me of interested.


    oh and I'm pretty low. trust me when I say my skid plate saves.

    I can get you more pictures, but mine is a little but different then the one that I just made. the one on my car has two more holes drilled for more nutserts but they don't line up with the m10 nutserts. I was originally using 4, m8 nutserts. but the two m10s are easier to work with. and if you look at the skid plate on my car it has those two triangle cut outs for the steering rack bolts, the skid plate would hit them. I put the bolts that way for testing. the new plate I made doesn't need the cut outs. lol no that's not my license plate. i pop riveted that on to the sheild of my fuel filter. haven't relocated it yet. I don't know what the mm underpanel is.

    looks to me that it will work, but they won't bolt together.
