    To his credit, I reached out to Tyler via email yesterday to cancel my order and get my money back and it was almost immediate, which was much appreciated. Thats on the table for people who are upset..
    I had an order in for a rear guard (I have an RCI front & Desert Eagle mid currently) but got disheartened reading some of the wait times on here, I had only been in about a month and a half or so but have a trip coming up out of state in early Dec and want to get the rears secured from the tweakers so will be welding a few block plates on my DE guard to keep the sawzalls out instead at this point.
    Running a small buis (or side buis) is stressful, especially when youre han soloing it, and theres guaranteed to be growing pains. A takeaway from a fellow buis owner: underpromise/overdeliver> overpromise/underdeliver.

    What size bolts are needed for the skid plate oil filter access cover?

    I finally got my full set of plates bolted up last night, but am missing the oil filter access cover bolts (x3). Anyone know what size I need?

    I think what likely happened is you use the bolts for the oil filter plate on the plastic tabs. Either way, 5/16x.75

    Thanks. I will get some. I didn't have any small bolts included, so didn't have any for the plastic tabs either, they are hanging loose right now. Will pick up extras for the tabs. :thumbsup:

    They are “virtual” cat plates. Zero weight and completely transparent.

    Seems like it would need a flood barrier to keep the battery safe, especially from water

    I'm sure that's not the only one. I wouldn't buy a used one of those for the same reason I wouldn't buy a used Raptor!

    Sorry you had a bad experience. Mine:

    Ordered front skid plate in late August. Got billed right away. I sent an email saying I know you are backed up, what is lead time? Response, 8 weeks. Life has moved fast and time has flown by. With the kerfuffle this week, I realized 8 weeks had passed.

    So, I messaged this week and the response was next batch, give me two weeks. Cool.

    Now, I have no reason to doubt it will be here in a few weeks. Likely will not flame in front of everyone if it isn’t. If we go into December I might cancel the order and ask for a refund, we will see.

    At this point, all of my expectations of supporting a small business owner and member of the community (that nearly burned his shop to the ground in the interim) has gone as I thought it would.

    Too much drama in this world for me to get upset over this.

    Anyway, that is my experience for those following along.

    They can be submerged in water for some sort of limited time I believe
    It’s really more to protect it from sort of sharp / heavy debris or something

    I was being sarcastic in reference to the recent EV battery fires during the floods

    I was just wondering what a police officer thinks when he has to visibly sit a road to help remind people to slow down, and someone who thinks their Civic with loud pipes should be immune to speed limit signs blows by him 20 miles an hour over the speed limit. It's a thankless job, I'm sure...

    You are lucky and through some cancellations, I should have this welded the rest of the way tonight, I expect this to ship next week

    I don't know about anyone else but I don't think I want high school kids packing my cat plates. Don't have a lot of faith in some of the younger generation. Sorry, but get off my grass!!! Tyler packs plates almost bullet-proof and they arrive in great shape. I hope everyone gets their panties out of a wad and remembers that Valhalla is a one-person operation. Period. Is it going to take a while to get your plates? Yes. Are they worth the wait? Yes. I used to be a member of this forum, under a different user ID, and quit for a period due to all the pissing and whining going on. I just got tired of it. I re-joined because I missed the good folks on the forum who pass along great info and help for others. If you order cat shields from Tyler, it will take a while to get them. If you can wait, great. If you can't wait, place an order with someone else. I probably shouldn't drink my Bulleit Burbon and post, but, it is what it is.
