First of all... thank you goes out to Justin @ AZ Power and Sound. :cheers He's their fabricator and he kicks ass. He was kind enough to fab this up for me during some of his free time. It's not exactly what he wanted and wasnt too thrilled with me takin pictures, but he's a perfectionist and takes pride in his work... i'm sure some of you can relate.
He used Diamond plate and its CONSIDERABLY lighter than the stock skid plate. I know i could probably go without it, but i'd rather be safe than sorry and have something on there.

I dont wanna hear any redneck comments about the diamond plate either...... lol if you guys knew me, you'd understand :cool:

While this diamond plate application isn't technically as strong as the factory skid plate -- it will do the job except in a worse case scenario -- such as hitting a big chunk of concrete at freeway speeds.

Been driving for close over 25 years -- and the worst impact I've ever had in that area was hitting a leather pouch full of tools that fell off some dirtbag's Harley. Although my car didn't get hurt -- everybody in back of me had wrenches and sockets bouncing off their cars.

Rest assured, redneck squirrels will certainly appreciate the fine detail on the diamond plate the instant before their brains get blown out.*

WIll diamond plate protect it as well as the OEM plate?

IMO it'll do everything a OEM will do unless its a high speed impact with something very hard...

I wasnt TOO worried about having the skid plate on there at all, but I figured something wouldnt hurt.

the Diamond plate cost roughly $20...... so if youre willing to do some work yourself, its a much cheaper option than any other aftermarket skidplate.
plus this IS stronger than any aftermarket skid plate thats available for the GTO right now.
