Home made skid plate

I've had the stuff to do this skid plate kicking around for a couple years now. I finally got around to doing the fab. I copied the design that has mounts welded to the frame rails. I welded a piece of 1" x 3/8" flat bar to the front subframe and drilled and tapped into it to mount the rear of the plate. The hoop is made out of 1 1/2" x 3/16" square tube and is removable. The plate is a 12" wide piece of 3/16" thick stainless steel plate so I don't have to worry about it rusting if it scrapes on something. There's about 3/8"-1/2" clearance between the skid plate and oil pan.

I still need to make a cut out in the plate for doing oil changes.

While I had the car up I also pulled apart my coilovers and cleaned them up...

with all the work I've been doing on my car lately I'm definitely looking forward to getting it out for a nice drive on the spring cruise Sunday!
That is all
