Re: bash plate


Hi Guys,

Today I installed Joseph's (Helldude) T31 Bash Plate and his exy had the plastic protection in place. It needs to be removed for sure and it is being held in place by 10 plastic clips, so very easy to remove:

Re: bash plate


Thanks for your Help with the install Jalal emoticon
I Can't wait to test it out ,I feel more confident with the added protection now.
I did notice a slight loss of ground clearance, but nothing dramatic , I don't think it will be a big issue where I plan to drive.

No worries Jo, It's better to hit the bash plate and realize that you clipped something along the way and traveling with close to the ground clearance limit of the exy, than rip apart the plastic protection and risk further damage to the sump and transfer case. I reckon it's the best insurance to have and a good way of alerting you of what you're about to cross.

Re: bash plate


Hey Jalal
I have just swapped the Nissan splash plate with the new bash plate emoticon .
Thanks for your printed instructions and added replies to this thread - they came in very handy (mainly because I'm not emoticon ). A couple of the plastic clips were a bit stubborn (one shattered a couple of times) but generally it WAS piece of cake. I feel much better knowing that more of the underside is protected now (the splash plate was obviously only included for cosmetic reasons emoticon ).
Thanks again.

Good stuff Steve. Well done mate.

I think you're the first one to install it by following the DIY installation guide, so it's a good sign that all OK emoticon

Jalal

Fitted the plate yesterday - had a spare half an hour and did it in under.

Just a point to note to the DIY guide, a set of good ramps is going to save some time.

I don't know why Nissan bother with the plastic guard - it is rubbish.

Hi John,

Good stuff mate and yes of course ramps will be required. I won't even try going under an exy without them and get stuck LOL emoticon
