Lightbulb Skid plates available or needed?

Hello everyone-

I recently installed a new Alltrax controller from scottyb in my 09 precedent.
It works awesome and I've been having more and more fun with the cart off road. I wasn't able to re-install theplastic splash shield over the area where the controller is. Alltrax says that controller is sealed and would be fine with any water exposure. I'd rather not try it...

I was curious if anyone has any skid plates for the underbody? I've done some searching and all I could find was plate for rear end. I'm hoping to avoid getting wires caught and ripped .

Any help? Thanks guys!

I asked the same question a while back and got multiple answers.. Most of the suggestions were to use a aluminum plate or something else like a street sign with some band clamps..

That thought crossed my mind! I guess I'll have to make a template out of cardboard and make one.... I was hoping someone made them.

What did you end up doing?

I made one using 2x2 sheet diamond plate. It turned out fair but would be better if sheet was 3x3 as the frame is about 27 ish inches wide. I had to make tabs to mount the pan that cut and bent to fit around the spring mounts and then extends and bends up close to the motor.

I will make a new one this winter - it's hard to fab stuff at the campground. Tin snips - framing square - tape measure and rubber mallet was all I had.

I can take a pic if anyone is interested.

I have thought about making one out of an old pickup bed liner. It would be virtually free & pretty easy to cut from a cardboard mockup. It could be fastened using heavy duty zip ties or hose clamps.

The biggest issue I have is in the winter with all the snow & I think this would keep the engine compartment from filling up with snow & ice.

I used self tapping screws... I hesitated but small holes are no biggie.

I thought about going plastic at first, I even scoped out some cheap garbage cans at Menards.

The pan works - so far. I hope it doesn't act as a holding area for mud and muck. Maybe drain holes? I dunno... Work in progress

I would protect it if you are seeing lots of fluids splashing up. I had a smoked Alltrax 650 the other day and I opened it up to see the innards. They use a coating to weatherproof it, however they have two straws (like drinking straws from a fast food place) with pinched over tops to ventilate under the coating. This seems like a weak point to me, as it opens the underside to possible contamination. I've never seen it happen, just noticed it when I opened it up
