Algard shiplate INSTALLED!

Thanks to Bob AKA Tinner saving the day and finding a spare rear bracket, my newly acquired from the UK Algard skidplate is now securely installed on my V
It took a bit of tweaking here and there but it's VERY SOLID.
Here are some shots:








And a final shot of it on the road

As far as I know it is. The other one made my a member here (Tinner) was mounted to the exhaust header in the front, wasn't it?

Hmmm. I think the Algard and Tinner's mounted the same in the front. There were two mounting options for the rear for tbe Algard...one using the exhaust pipe (v1) and one using the oil pan (v2). I think Tinner's uses something similar to the v2. I have the Algard and both mounts, but I use the v1 exhaust mount. If I hit something with any real force, I'd rather break the exhaust pipe than the oil pan.
