Is the attachment downloadable & viewable? Not sure here.
Thanks for finding and posting…an interesting read.
I like the idea of the extra protector plate…has anyone on this forum been down that path?
It doesn’t say who wrote the article…Ken, do you know?
Yes I do.

Another “rare” part in Oz, this rear skirt marries well with the “rare” engine protector plate on my syncro.
It looks the business Ken…did you get it fabricated?
Definitely not VAG. I would say made locally.
What is the number stamped on it Ken? Someone can look it up from this.
Looks a little like the turbo diesel version (that we never got over here) but it does appear to be a custom made version.
Very interesting Ken. I have seen in the past versions others have made. Would not be that hard to recreate in aluminium plate and fit to nutserts in the rails under the engine.
