sorry sorry sorry
my wrong,
was too caught up getting my baleno gypsy re done for the autocross that i forgot to remove and post pictures
Shall do that tomorrow since now there is no light.
Underbody treatment is on its way
the oil cooler has four layers of metal protection all in aluminium and with enough of perforations to pass air flow through
Also this is a car that would be driven by a woman, so hence all the extra protection

pictures during this weekend

Allan,
As always your work looks good, had thought you are building a Off road scorpio. This machine is a Anti Land Mine war tank.

Hey Allan,
Great work man! Where is the engine oil sump? I dont seem to find it. Have you covered it also?

Do measure the weight of the Scoprio after all this protection.

Great, was looking at how to get the Engine Sump Guard build and where to mount the front part, you have solved that problem by mounting the front on the differential. I just made my AT auxiliary oil cooler protection done today, its really hard to find some one who has patience and does the "accurate" fabrication at least here in Nagpur.

Looks like there will be more idea flowing from your side to get my AT 4WD equipped to certain level.
