Sorry for reviving an old thread but I too am interested in a skid plate for my st165. I am going to be rally-X'ing it this year and don't like how the oil pan is open to the elements so to speak. If any of the guys who have skid plates, have measurements of there skid plates and how they mounted them I would greatly appreciate the info so I don't have to start from scratch to try and make one.
Again sorry for reviving this thread it just seemed like there were a lot of people interested and it just kinda fell off.

you must think about the materials a bit more. stainless steel rusts fast if not painted well. second is weight! i think alluminum would be a better idea, only problem with that is cost...also what thickness of material do you plan on using?[/quote]
umm...stainless will not rust at all...ive got a 1/8 inch stainless skid plate on my GMC Sierra and its been ran through 3 canadian winters and not one bit of rust at all....stainless will only tarnish ...will never rust... and stainless is very durable...much more durable than aluminum....the stuff i used was very hard to drill as it was a very dence stainless.....pretty well armor plating !

After 3 days of designing,measuring,trials i've made myself a light replica of that Cusco guard,and i can make more of them in different thickness
Mine is 3mm hard-Al perfect for light gravel racing due to reduced weight.
At first i was going to do it from 7mm Alu but i realized I'm not going to race on such tough rallyes and belly-surf on gravel
Price is 199$ + shipping,although shipping from Europe to US will add some charges.
