Re: T31 bash plates (Full Undercarriage Protection Set)
I have the TJM version of the bashplate. It's a good size covering full width and a fair bit up front.
Although it's not shovel proof cuz the front isn't secured at the flap. I think it's 3mm aluminium/alloy. Maybe paid $300.
It's only draw back is the fact that the installers just used u-bolts pointed downwards. Therefore the nut is exposed and there's still thread showing below that! Lucky my partner hasnt indulged in my desire to go off-roading just yet as there is potential to burr the thread and ergo may have an issue getting it off.
I've heard another bloke use "rivnuts" (spelling Unknown) to fit his bashplate on his Exy. Where the same principle of using pop rivets fastens a nut to the surface (obviously where the hole is) which allows the user to insert a bolt into it. This sounds like a great idea and as soon as I can manage it, will look to do the same with my setup so that way only the head of the bolts are exposed.
