    They are very well made,compleate with nice cut back edge which will stop them catching on raised roads.Fitment was a breeze. The front of me car was resprayed last week and i was not takeing it out without them, so i orderd them,Paul Hills seems like a cool guy.Recomended.

    Paul hills have got the same shape, but are a better finish and with the leading edges shamford (i dont know how to spell it) to stop them from snagging.Also they are fixed on with 4 holes for allen headed bolts and backing plates on each. Post pics tomorrow.

    FWIW, the skid plates I have on my 355 actually have a lip on the front edge, so it wraps OVER the leading edge of the underpanel. The ones in the pics above appear to mount FLUSH to the underpanel lip.

    The front edge of the plates I installed is also beveled, so it doesn't catch. Installation requires a drill, a screwdriver, and about 5 minutes (no removal of anything required). I think it was $125 or $135 or something like that, made out of aircraft grade, high lubricity nylon.

    vty,

    --Dennis
