    Skid plates

    Has anyone here made their own skidplates for these cars? I would like to talk to you guys about that, as far as what material, thickness, distance from the pans.
    I have some on mine and there is like an inch or so between the top of the plate and the pans. I was thinking to make new ones to cut down on that distance and give me more clearance.

    I normally dont have too much of an issue but the other day I got really pissed. I went to get an alignment and on the test drive (while I was sitting in the waiting room watching) the mechanic gunned it out of the parking lot (down a pretty steep driveway) and bottomed it out pretty bad. Had I not had the plates Im sure I would have new pans at this point! Luckily the manager offered me a free adjustment next time as I inevitably will mess with the height a little after testing it out and free adjustment when the adjustable rear control arms go in .

    I will take a picture next time im under the car. They are not something like on a truck, maybe sump guard would be a better name? Just two plates to protect the engine parts closest to the road. A very good idea in the area where I live, the roads are pretty bad out of nowhere sometimes and with however many million people on the road in Chicagoland you sometimes have to just go with it until you can get out of the way.
