I recently started talking to Paul at Primitive Racing about possibly doing a local group buy of sorts on some skid plates. I figure it's gotta be cheaper if he's able to ship a number of them at once, plus any discount that might come with ordering a number of them. Everything would be shipped to one location near Springfield, VA and the plates would need to be picked up there.
I don't have pricing or numbers yet, but will update here as I find out more. For general pricing, check out the website (http://www.writerguy.com/primitive/skid.htm
). In talking to him a while back, a basic 1/8" skid plate was $215 + $25.55 for shipping. $18 extra for fumoto access and $16 extra for oil access.
If you are interested let me know and I'll get a list going.
- BarmanBean ('05 OBXT) w/Fumoto F105s 1/8" front $199 no holes, no mod needed for Fumoto = $199-12%=176+18=194
- BMB's friend ('12 WRX) w/Fumoto F105s 1/8" front $199 + $20 for Fumoto placed oil holes = $219-12%=193+18=211
- xero287 ('11 WRX) w/oil hatches 3/16" front $239 + $20 + $50 bolt-on oil hatches = $309-12%=272+18=290
- tsunami ('07 LGT, tomei ELH) w/Tomei EL Headers and Fumoto F-105N oil holes 1/8" front $199 + $20 for Fumoto Oil holes + $18 header spacers = $237-12%=209+18=227
- S0CalGT ('05 LGT JDM ELH) w/JDM Spec C EL Headers no holes 1/8" Front $199 + $9 mild header spacers = $208-12%=184+18=202
UPDATED PRICE BREAK DOWN (assuming 6 orders):
- All 1/8" front skidplates: $199
- All 3/16" front skidplates - $239
- Fumoto cutout&valve add on - $49
- Fumoto cutout only - $20
- Oil access holes - $20
- Header spacers - $20
Use the above values to figure the price of your plate. Take 15% off and add $15 for shipping. All plates would be shipped to Springfield, VA.
For example, my plate would be a 1/8" + fumoto cut out + oil access cutout ($199 + $20 + $20 = $239 - 15% = $203.15 + $15 = $218.15
