Diego just let me know that he drilled new holes in the front to move the skid up. He also said that his bumper is not stock... I'll see if he will post a couple pics.

I had my shop remove a section of the bracket and change the location of a bolt and they got the skid plate to sit as flush as possible! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out

That is quarter inch plate, good luck breaking that... The frame rail will bend before that plate does...

I'm kinda digging the period correct vibe though, very Porsche 964 with the white wheels on red.

Only issue we have seen with install, are on the 97 autos with the Trans lines. Shouldn't be an issue installing on a rhd.
