Group buy, E30 sump guard

Recommended Posts

Possibly interested. What's the hole for? Oil changes?

I also have an e36 steering rack, I'm hoping that wont make a difference.

..... is it M5x compatible

Don't think it is, but that may have changed. Last I saw it wasn't M5x compatible, or even 16v. It was originally designed for M20s but plans were to expand on that.

why doesnt one person buy it and split the costs with x number of people then get it made locally after getting it scanned? im sure it will be cheaper no?

If you order a pile of them, you'll probably get stung for GST/customs on the way in, which may defeat the purpose of a group buy??????? Something to look into at least!

Yea I had thought about gst obviously would have to calculate that based on how much interest and if it's worth it or not

based on knowing how far my dollar goes at my local engineer, id say you would be struggling to produce that for $250 to be of a suitable quality worth fitting.

Your talking to the wrong engineers or paying in the wrong currency.
Guys at my work have worked 5+ hours on a weekend for a box of piss.
If someone wants me to replicate a couple i'd be keen. (i'm not here to make money, although the beer fridge is quite empty)
I've got access to cad software, profile cutters work across the road from my work, i've got a folder at work that will be fine with 3mm stainless and can weld it as well.

A few simple design upgrade's and you could negate having to weld stiffness an nuts. Dosnt need scanning just tape measure to get oa dims.

If we're serious about this, it'd be nice if it can be done locally, especially if there are savings to be had too.

The one pictured would only protect you from pebbles anyway. As said earlier, just get one profile cut and pressed.

Did this go any further with getting made locally? I need one.

I have an original one an engineering shop could copy.

I desperately need one also. Perhaps if enough of us get together we can lower cost of either importing or copying Palazzo's one.

I'd be keen if it was "rally car" safe. M52 swap also.

Can there be such a thing as a 'universal' fit sump guard - M10, M20, M30, M5x, M6x... ?

Based on the Red46 page, they have 5 different ones, based on pictures it varies for the sump bung? or height for clearance of the different engine options. so I'm thinking a universal fit won't work.

I will keep hunting locally, If I can find something I'm happy to facilitate a group buy..

@Palazzo - where in Auckland are you? If James - @thorburn - can help, I may be able to relay the 'pattern' to him.
