Hi Everyone,

The group buy has been locked as of today with a total of 13 People in the group buy (Including Martin).

**All skid plates will have the 4 small mounting holes in them for the anti sway bar**

Martin,

(Not trying to take business away from Dave)...

I have one of Dave's skid plates from the previous run. Does not have holes for the anti-sway bar. It has not been installed yet. I can send you mine after I get a new one from Dave...

Same price Dave's asking...

Hi Will,

No problem, if you guys can work something out and both end up with what you want that would be great. But please let me know in the next day or two so I can change my order size

sorry for the belated answer back

that would be fine Will. I know that Dave has closed the order call with me on the list for the one with the holes so either one of us can let him know that we have switched

How would you like the payment
email me @mpodgorski@landrovertortlaud.com

mo' money

Dave,

Probably a day late and a dollar short but you still 'gots' any of this piece of hardware ?

95 D90 SW ...

The plate on there looks a bit rusty and it's got other holes in it but they aren't filled with anything, so I guess I need the one without holes. I don't know what the sway bars look like, the truck has been like this since I got it.

Also if you have them, how much is the shipping to TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA 32308 ??

AND, I emailed you about some ROCK SLIDERS and was wondering if you had those...?

THANKS

Nicholas Orros

Nick, how rusty is it? If it's surface, I would pull it, sand blast and galvanize it. Cheap and easy if you missed the group buy. Otherwise, maybe get a used one and have that galvied while you use your existing one.

Just possibilities if Dave can't accomodate you....

ahhh... good idea

I can see some spots just by looking at it and I dread to think of what it looks like underneath, kind of like the pictures on the 'slickrock' website.
I don't think this guy is alive, I'm going to take your suggestion and run ... and on top of that buy the Bill Burke Sliders...

thx & cheers,

Nicholas

Nick - you can step in and buy the skid I had spoken for if you want - my project slowed down and it will just be sitting in my garage for awhile.

"Who died"

Not me

I am still alive and kicking

But I think he was saying that his skid plate was dead and that he was going to run with Dave M's advice.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Anyhow,

Sorry for the lack of updates. The skid plates are moving along just fine and will be ready to go in about two weeks. I have made a prototype of the skid with the sway bar holes and everything looks great.

thanks

Dave

Thumbs up Don't hold a wake for Dave just yet.

Dave fit the prototype on my 90, and I have to say it is KICK ASS! It is 10 times stronger than stock. If you bent it, (which you wont), you will have bigger problems than a bent skid plate. For instance a missing rear cross member or a rear axel. It is just plain bomber.

After the old skid plate was off, I was stunned at how much rust was actually under the tank. I was also amazed at how flimsy the sock unit is. It is like 12 gage sheet metal with a pieces of light tubing, like electrical conduit, welded to the front.
