I am in the process of having new skid plates made from these templates. They will be the same material and cut on a water jet. I will be purchasing a 5'x10' sheet and can run several additional sets on these. My questions are below to confirm if it's worth it.

1) Were these a factory option for Murci's and if so which years have this style? Mine is an 08' LP640.
2) There are threaded inserts in the bumper that allen bolts thread into to hold these in place. They would be identical to align with the same holes.
3) I can't seem to find the item number (if factory) on where this brand was purchased from which is why I'm going the route of remaking for myself and others if needed.

Thanks for any help and have a look at the pics and let me know.

PS. There is one set on eBay right now and they are asking $1,200... crazy expensive. They would accept $600 but I still think a used scraped up set isn't worth that much so here we go!

Cheers,
Bryan

These look nothing like mine or attach the same way.. Are you remembering an earlier style which screwed in with threaded inserts? I appreciate you taking the time to see... it would be great to see where they came from originally.

On the Murci skid plates are an excellent idea but there is a MUCH simpler and cheaper solution out there that works wonderfully well. Here is a product review including a full install on a Murcielago

I have seen those before and not a bad idea. I think since mine screw in and cover the entire underside I will keep that design. I do love this videos, super helpful on his Murci posts. Thanks for sharing

I've been meaning to do this too. Reason I haven't is bec my car is at my place without tools or means of raising it. Not sure how I would be able to drill holes properly and do the rivets. But these adhesive versions seem almost too good to be true.

If the SLiPLO universal kit, which version to get?
If the steeply priced Automods, you say they are the older version? Are their newer version NOT adhesive?

Automods I'm unsure on how they adhere/attach, I just know mine didn't come from them.

I did speak with Dave at Premier Motorsport Inc. in Compton. They are a ferrari repair specialist and make skid plates. They don't shown any pictures or mention anything about Lamborghini but I was told to call them to check if mine were theirs possibly, their not.

He told me yesterday he would send me some pics of theirs and if he had any on customer cars so I can post those here once I receive them. He also said he could make a set with "no holes" so I could match up to mine before putting the bumper back on as it's currently being repainted. To me this doesn't seem like a good way to go unless you were installing for the first time.

I will say that the ones which bolt on (like mine) offer more rigidity to the entire bumper, skid plate combo as it's like a second skin. If you hit a curb no matter what you have on there it won't save you but I do like the idea of having a more rigid piece of ABS down there to glide/slide on. And it's held up well. Even though mine are damaged nothing on the bumper was or stress cracks, etc... all good.
