    E36 skid plate

    Anyone got / made one?

    Got a little friendly with a cats eye the other day while going round a van down a back road. Living in the middle of nowhere, and enjoying a good blast on the way to work, I'd like something between the bottom of my car and the road.

    Especially as I want to go lower

    If nothing else, does anyone know where i could purchase some diamond plate or something else suitable for skid plate making?

    It's looking like I'll be getting some sheet metal and building something myself...

    Large sheet of metal that hits the ground before anything important!

    I'll get rid of some passengers then! I'd rather add some weight and not have to worry I'm going to lose all my oil every time I overtake someone
