I dont think theres much dinging a aluminum oil pan.And for what i paid for the dam thing i dont mind an extra step to do a oil change.The filter cover is only there because the skid cant be any wider or it hits the drive shaft and it looked like a accident waiting to happen having that dam thing hanging over the side of the skid. I think my next investment is going to be a tubing bender.That front support would have came out alot nicer if i had one.

Did you flex out your suspension? I found things hit when flexed that look fine at ride height. Looks good.

Erin, what are the chances you're going to edit the title of this build thread to joescamaro, with an "o" at the end instead of an "a"?
i edited the title just for you paul.

Looks pretty good. Not bad for not having a bender. Now you can hit the rocks without having to worry about that crazy expensive oil pan.
