I just startedd building a set of engine guards to mount to the ricochet skid plate. Im not finished yet but I have a decent start. I dont have a tig welder so I cant put tabs on the skid plate like the tci has so im going to put a tab on the bottom part of the guard and bolt it to the skid. Well at least that's the plan for the moment..

The paint is rustoleum universal hammered paint. Its supposed to be black but its almost identical in color to the cyclerack gray. I really like the tci skid plate but I already had the ricochet skid plate and I didnt want to spend $240 bucks. I only have maybe $20 in it and probably 10-20 hours of time.

I had some nice allen headed bolts for the bottom of the skid plate basically like the bottom two bolts on the ricochet skid plate but when I tried tightening then down the head stripped out so I said the heck with that and just used regular bolts that way if something ever happens I wont have to weld a nut to the allen head like I did earlier just to get the bolt out.
