Default Bash Plates

Looking to put some bash plates under my vehicle to replace the flimsy plastic.

Has anyone had any overheating problems due to possible restricted airflow from the engine bay caused by the plates?

None at all.. I have Bushskiz 6mm alloy bash plates under my 2018 Exceed and do a lot of offroad driving plus towing a 1500kg camper trailer and never had a heating problem.

Hi John, I installed stainless steel 3mm bash plates (Boo's from Kilsyth in VIC no affiliations) and very happy. Recently crossed the Simpson and hit the underside a few times on sandy dunes but no obvious damage. Cheers

No overheating issues with a full set of Boos in my NX, so I can't see why the Sport would be different.

Thanks for the feedback
Purchased a set of 3mm Boo's plates in zinc coated steel.
Surprised by the quick delivery.
Will install them this weekend when the weather improves.

Clear weather today, so bolted on the bash plates from Boo's. Really easy job and took about an hour.
Used a couple of wood blocks to hold the plates in position while doing up the bolts.

Boo's send four 8x25mm bolts for fixing the rear plate over the transmission, but there are enough bolts that held the old plastic guard on to do the job with two left over as spares.

Look good and are very strong. Recommended.

Sounds good, but just a thought re the bolts - are Boo's any different, eg, high tensile, etc? (bolts may look the same, but there are different strengths, threads, etc.)

After 8 years and 150,000kms of aftermarket underbody guards being fitted, and having continuly having loose bolts, missing bolts, loose guards and broken mounts, and having tried all sorts of bolts and lock washer combinations.

I have found the combination at Champion High Tensile 8.8 bolts fitted with Nord Lock washers and anti seize on the threads to be the best method of attaching aftermarket guards.

M8x30 Flange head bolts from Repco.

M8 Nord Lock washers from United Fasteners.
