Do you plan on making more of these? I want one! A rogue grapefruit sized stone took out one of my trans's. I think this will sell before I'll be ready to buy it. Do u got a pic with the car on the ground? I wanna see how far below the bumper it hangs.

Hand tools. I tried to find a local shop to use a water jet, but the setup fee is very high.

Charles not dogging on the design and looks good but you might be able to add a flat plate on the bottom under the slots to create a vacuum effect to draw out even more heat. Like blowing an air hose in a piece of pipe. As the nozzle moves away from the pipe or into the pipe extra air is drawn in to the pipe for flow. But would require a bunch of temp sensors to test to see if the results are even noticeable so I'll shut up now.

Bob, would you be willing to make one without the vents just to save you time? I would cut my own, but wondering if this would lower cost.

It would cost less. $345.00 shipped. There is some welding involved and hardware. Wish I could make it cheaper. Takes a lot to make a nice pc.

If any of these are available in the spring, i'll probably pick one up without the vents/holes in it. I can put holes in aluminum myself.

I been following your other thread I really want one of those skid plates for the front, are the skid plates a bolt on or do you have to drill holes for they skid plate?

do these work out well with the JDM bumper?

Any options for powder coating? I was thinking about ordering one with no vents and a matt black finish.

LMK!

They should work no problem with the JDM front bumper. As it bolts to the radiator support. I can powder coat for you. Local shop by me. They charge $75.00 for the front skid plate.
