Wink Legacy BODY ARMOR

This is a cross post from the STi Mail list... Paul Eklund is the owner/operator of Primitive Racing - supplier of Subaru performance parts and accessories - he's also a rally driver - er... just in case you aren't familiar with him. I've bought several items from his company and have never been less than overjoyed!!

Anyway, I have the full 'body armor' on my car, and if you've any questions about this product, please feel free to email me direct. Believe me, this armor has saved the GUTS of my GT from being ripped to shreds out there on the spectator (rally) stages!



Subject: Legacy Body Armor

I am in the final stages of developing a 3/16" (stout) aluminum front
skidplate that will fit the Legacy Outback vehicles (thanks to several
Primitive customers). This will provide superior underbody protection. It
is large and wide and protects the sump (very vulnerable) and the exhaust
downpipes. It is based on the Impreza skidplate and looks nearly identical
to the skidplates pictured at www.get-primitive.com http://www.get-primitive.com

The price will be nearly the same as the Impreza 3/16" at $230. It weighs
approx 20 lbs and replaces the factory plastic or steel engine protector.
It does require the purchase of the 2.5RS jack-up plate for better clearance
and pre-threaded holes (I will supply at cost which is ~$11). All other
mounting hardware is included. It uses 3 bolts across the front into
threaded holes and 2 bolts under the engine. The heads of those bolts are
protected by being recessed with a bead of weld. It will take approx 3
minutes or less to remove to gain access to the oil filter.

I also carry the 3/16" aluminum rear differential skidplate which fits
Impreza or Legacy and weighs just 5 lbs! $135 Buying both gets you a
discount (Full Body Armor). This is great for rally, rallycross, or just
those backroad expeditions...

Please email me if you are interested in such a skidplate, or tell your
"Legacy" friends...

Watch for more information in upcoming issues of Sport Compact Car magazine.
