    Seems like with a solid skin, it's not going to split like that or catch something on the edge of one of the vents as it drags across. It's just going to dent or crease.

    That HIK does look the beefy however.

      Got the oil pan repaired. It was able to be drilled out and re-threaded. Only cost $60 so that's nice. Hope I can knock the rest out this weekend.

              I wouldve already done it but the 84 radiator support is a little different.

              and something already happened, my friend busted the pan in december when he crashed into a curb. also bent the wheels, control arms, fenders, and a small dent in the rad support, but just enough to cause a pinhole leak in the radiator.

              cars better than before now, but yea... that red46 skidplate needs to go on. I already have the wholes drilled considering that my cars PO was Ben, Mr. red46 himself.

                        On a shelf. I do have a hook up for powder coating the faces after getting the one face fixed. So, Futura rebuild is on for this fall/winter. I need to get another vehicle first. I really want to get something capable off road.

                                I vote this if you want a permanent solution. I had a red46 skid plate and it crumpled/bowed upwards & killed my oil pan
                                The whole skid plate folded & hit my oil pan, even with the motor spaced up 20mm....
                                Then again, you don't plan to really be that low anymore right?

                                Look at the part of the skid plate where it attaches to the subframe
