bear with me here..
I have a large street sign. Almost 2X if not 2.5X the size of a normal sign. it is a speed limit sign so its rectangular in shape. Believe it to be aluminum and almost 1/4 inch thick!
I want to fashion it into a working skid to protect tranny cooler and tran housing. Im not making a prerunner front end here but just a nice clean skid (itll be sanded and painted black). Idea is to keep front bumper (try to raise it the best I can, and drop the lower splash guard...now form here where do I mount?..as the body bounces up and down atop the frame I dont want to restrict its movement but securing the plate in the wrong area. So pointers would be awesome.
should i secure it to bumper alone? or cross member alone? I will bend and fashion the sign as needed. Im just lookin got see if anyones done this. Its practically free. sign is hella big and easy to cut and shape and My tran cooler is so messed up from wheeling it cant take much more so its practical too. thanks!
