Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

it's looking good! I am going to be purchasing the WK2 Sump Protection Plate, but shipping is pretty expensive to California, 185$. Any cheaper shipping options?

Thanks

WK2 Lower Front Guard

Looks spot on, is there any indicative pricing yet for these guards? Presumably it fits with the chief sump protector?
Tore up the factory plastic sump guard out in Gnangara yesterday :)
