Those are great pics in your photo album.Powder Coated Guard
Pictures of the Subaru Aluminium Splash Guard after powder coat. Wanted to match the orange-ish red trim color of the Sport model. Didn't come out exactly as planed. Looks more like KTM orange.
The guard is mostly for show and would never be able to withstand a significant smash against rocks or roots. Mounts to undercarriage with four bolts and 10 plastic clips. Far better than the plastic factory splash guard and looks pretty cool.
The replacement should come with an aluminium oil drain cover plate. You need to keep the original plastic oil drain cover plate and re-install on the aluminium splash guard with plastic rivet clips. Not acceptable. I will be making a billet aluminium replacement that bolts on. Again purely for fashion purposes, because my wife drives this vehicle and it will most likely never really go off-road.
