    Started building a motor guard/skid plate today, I got most of the tubing welded up and patterns for the aluminum inserts done.

    Here it is so far.

    beautiful work Toyanvil! So glad to see you thinking outside the box. Could there be a set of hi-way pegs in your future? Can't wait to see the finished product. Keep the eye candy coming. TIM

    Looks good! Very aggressive styling.



    Looks like the engine guard hoops stick out far enough to provide some side cover protection too, a feature all too lacking in most of the aftermarket plates.

    Boy thats nice. Should have made more than just 1 while you were at it! Even without the inserts that looks tougher than the aluminum foil skid plate we have now.

    After re-reading your initial post, I understand now that the aluminium inserts will allow the guard to 'slide' over any jagged surface. You are certainly a Master innovator when I comes to TW mods. Gerry

    Take care my Friend.........
