Kris talks tow hook & skid plate [video]

We got an email from Peter asking about our front tow hook and he also wanted to get some more details on the skid plate setup. I go over the details here:

I don’t know if something like this will be a continued segment on rallynotes – so hit up the comments if you enjoyed!

    Awesome, thanks. Couple of questions. Where did you source the HPDE and Metal for the Skid Plate from? About how wide is the skid plate? Would a 3′ x 4′ sheet be big enough? I am looking for my srt4. and will want to also use the skid plate to protect the bottom of the intercooler and intercooler pipes.

      Mike,
      The front aluminum plate is actually 32″ X 48″ I had it cut down to fit in my friends press. Find a metal supplier or machine shop that can help you out. I use Industrial Metal Supply here in SoCal. There are shops around that can put the bends in it for you. For reference a 3/16″ plate like mine at the time of this post cost about $180 in material.

      On the plastic I get my material from McMaster Carr. I cut down (2) 4′ x 4′ sheets. You could also get metal from them, but it’s more expensive to ship.

    Kris, thanks for making the video. My carbon fiber skidplate experiment failed, so I was looking for tips on making an aluminum one 🙂
