    How? Unbolt the front U bracing from the car and unbolt the rear and remove the plate. You could do it with the plate on, if you look you can see there is plenty of clearance. Ever change your oil? If you did you would clearly see there is lots of work room. The plate even looks to be offset from the first and second pictures. So even draining the oil would be fine installed.

    I think it is a great design. Just throwing it out there that ridding the bolts and putting the V rails on the other side would remove 1/2" or so of metal to scrap and catch on manholes, entrances, speed bumps etc. Bolt in how it is designed, then tack weld it, remove bolts and bead weld front and back solid.

    Bolts or not, this is a very solid design and will not rip your rad support out like others...lol

    Love this product. Has saved my lowered e30 many times... but perhaps the best part of it is how easy it is to jack up the front end now. 1 jack under the skid plate and I can slip 2 jackstands under the frame rails. Done.

    Ya, I have had several requests to ship to Australia but, the cheapest I can find is $210 through NEX express. (not including any duties) If anybody knows a cheaper way please share.

    Canada shipping is only $10 more unless your out in the sticks.
