I have to give a HUGE shout out to Michael here for working with me to produce a custom set of these plates to fit HKFever's CF splitter on my Exige. I'm just sorry I was such a pain , but the end result couldn't have been better :




I'd have no hesitation in recommending these to anyone.

Again, thanks Michael.

Cheers.

Thankyou Eddie, that means a lot to me.
Next time you hear that dreaded scraping sound, you won't have to worry.

How do these work for the 06 Exige? Do they mount on the front splitter or the lower front of the car? Does anyone have a photo of how they mount?
Thanks

Michael,
Just received and installed the skid plates for my 2011 Exige . Fit great and should protect it well! Many thanks. I installed with vhb tape.

These unbreakable skid plates will protect the underside of the nose from scrapes and damage.

Do you have a recommendation for a silicone to use for this? I know a lot of silicones aren't safe for use on painted surfaces or fiberglass.

I'm tempted to do this, but right now my Evora tends to be juuust high enough to not touch things, and I'm afraid that adding this will actually make it scrape, and in doing so might push the bottom lip up and cause cracking. How does that play out in the real world?

From experience, GE silicone caulking works very well, 3M VHB tape is an alternative.
Never heard of the plates causing contact or damage.
