Skid plate

Hey guys, lurked for a while but I figured I'd make a post. I have replaced my front facia and skid plate twice on my 300 because of parking stops.
So I made a adjustable 6061 Aluminum skid plate/spoiler to protect the bottom of the facia. Now it's impossible to get hung up. Here's a picture.

can you get a pic of the skid plate up? I'd be very interested in putting one on myself since I just wasted my $500 to have the front end replaced thanks to a close encounter with a parking curb.

Does the skid plate come off easily for oil changes? As much as I'd love to do these myself I have to take it to a shop as time is money.

Thanks

You don't need to remove the plate for oil changes as the factory plate under the oil pan is still in place for easy removal.

That is a great innovation!

I have reinforced mine with metal strips to keep from ripping it off. I took off the belly pan some time ago to get better cooling to the engine.

I first did what you did with the metal straps, but I still took off the front bumper. The end result with this is that now NOTHING can catch the front. A nice side effect is that it has increased the high speed stability.
