By unfortunate circumstance I now have two aftermarket bash plates. I fitted one the other day, the other is in the post.
They’re slightly different designs so I can do a comparison. My mate Steve can have the one I don’t want. The design is simple enough, and much better than the plastic OEM part.
Here’s the Ballards item fitted. It looks quite neat but is a snug fit on the engine. If I keep this one I’ll refit it after minor adjustments. When the other arrives I’ll swap and see.
