Has anyone made a sump guard to protect lowered cars form damaging extended sumps?

I have the Trust sump extension and is the lowest part under the car. Would like to make a guard but not sure where the best mounting points would be.

Cheers
Ant.

Yeah but was thinking something solid like metal plate. and just for the sump area, not looking for it to be particularly aerodynamic.

Maybe stianless steel sheet, not sure how thick I'd need it to be though...

was thinking about the samething.

The r34 splitter comes in two peices, l think the peice were you undo to change the oil can be replicated, depth added, bolted down at oem points, should do the job.

I am going to have a look at it.

(bottom of my sump is only 4" off the ground...)

guard.

I bought an aluminium sump guard off here !
Its shaped and was made for the r32 as std. It makes the front underside flat to just beyond the crossmember.
As I have an extended "trust" sump it will need modified to fit, its in my to do pile.:D think its 5 or 7mm thick ?
Pm me your e-mail addy and I will send you some pics and the measurements of it and the manufacturer. not sure if they are still available.;)
Funnily enough it was the other Ant on here who supplied it.
If your going off road , you need one of these ! :thumbsup:
