Group Buy: Gas Tank Skid Plates

Hi Everyone,

Several people expressed interest in getting a group buy started for the stainless steel gas tank skid plates that I offer.

The skid plates are manufactured from 3/16 304 stainless steel that is CNC laser cut, and then bent using a CNC press break. The use of the CNC machinery ensures that each skid plate is identical and will fit properly.

Group buy price
5 – 9 $175.00
10 – 20 $170.00

Shipping has been averaging $25 - $35 depending on location. I can also arrange to ship multiple skid plates in the same container. For instance if there are several people that want to split shipping and are located on the same area.

Please post here if you want to get in on the group buy so I will know how many skid plates we need. The cut off date for the group buy will be 4/26/2004 and they will be available approximately 3 weeks after the group buy closes (mid May).

Pictures can be seen here

Thanks,

Dave

Someone mentioned something about the threaded holes for the antisway bars in the Wanted thread. I wanted to make sure that your plates have these.

Hi Joe,

I can add holes to the skid plate in the appropriate location. Then a lock nut and bolt could be used to hold the sway bar in place.

Where's your tank located and how big is it? The 90 has a 15 gallon tank that is just infront of the rear cross member.

The D90 gas tank skid is different than the 110.

With that said….. I would like to look at the skid on your 110 and see if it would be worthwhile to make some. Is that that something that we could arrange Steve?

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to give you an update since the group buy closes on Monday.

We have 9 people that are in the group buy so far. Please let me know if I missed you or post here if you would like to be added to the list.

Tyler K
Joe P
Torrence S
Craig J
Keith D
Will S
Phil T
Paul H
Glenn G

As a result of adding the sway bar holes the skids they might take a little bit longer than originally planned. We will need to make a prototype and test fit it. But it should not set things back more that a week or two.

Have a great weekend!
