    JH-
    Have my 2nd e30 24v plate mounted. The flush mount bolts are a great upgrade from the 1st version I had. It has already taken some shots on shitty Milwaukee roads, and is unscathed. Sometimes I aim for stuff to scare my passengers. Whack! Thanks for making a quality product.







    And sorry, had to remove the obnoxious bright orange branding sticker. Maybe you should consider something more subtle.

    Any Black Friday Deal this year? Might just give me the motivation to buy.

    The end "stubs" are the only parts that get welded to the car.

    ,

    Just cut a section for the hoop to pass and you are good to go.

    can i see pics of the where it is welded? either with or without bar installed. i am very interested as I've already cracked one oil pan. I just replaced it but I'm doing a whole slew of other things before she hits the streets again after sitting for 6 years. Anyone running the stock plastic undershield with their skidplate? I seen one pic of a shield under the plate. Any other pics would be appreciated.

As I am running the Garagistic subframe spacers, there is no way that it will all bolt up back together as is. I think what I'll need is a new support tube that's extended by the thickness of the subframe spacers, 10mm I believe. Is this going to be a custom job or do you have something that will work?

    I'm willing to use my car as a test bed for superior 32v oil pan protection ;)
    Very interesting.

    Yes Sir, or you could build it up with some weld bead but, be careful let the piece cool between welds or it will warp up like an ugly taco.

    The HIK Fab Severe Duty skid plate is a proven superior design. That being said even the most heavy duty skid plate has a "lifetime". If you are running with ground down "V ribs" or a bent plate, you are running on borrowed time. Please get it repaired!

I still slow down a ton whenever there's railroads or bumps or dips so I never really hit hard. But there's always those surprises.

    I figured it would break the welds before that, I check the paint and welds on the frame and nothing had cracks of chips so I'm assuming it's fine.
    I usually do too but i didn't think the tracks stuck up that much. I'm going back to stock e30 drop hats soon so hopefully I don't hit everything like I am now.
