the pipes were too heavy ,and the general construction..more than 23 kgs each one..
so proceed to another construction from 5083..the material that a lot of industries factories companies,use to construct the skid plates..
in 8mm the plate covers all the side floor (no possibility for sharped rocks to come inside and touch it)
6mm is the "Z" pieces for the chasis
and 40x40x4 mm for the long piece 180mm length

Interesting departure from the norm there Chris - looking forwards to seeing how they play out in the field :thumbup:

yes - an interesting alternative - how heavy are they?
my steel sliders weigh about 25kg each...

11 kgs each one..and already tested..as tree slider have the same strength as a pipe ..
have flexibility (this is good) so if coming a real strong crash the force will destroy or damage the plate or brake the "Z" but will not transfer the force to the chasis..(nobody wants that).
also 2 people start to jump at the end of the plate near to the rear wheel and was ok..
2 times the rocks slide to the plate and was very nice..the construction is not for jump the car and hit with force to a rock with the side..
and the real costs was less than 200 euro for both pieces
