Q: Why should I buy an aluminum splash shield instead of OEM?
A: Let's face it, your plastic splash shield is either missing or damaged/ripped and barely hanging on. In our case, the original splash shield on our 1998 SC300 was dragging on the ground when we replaced it with our aluminum version. OEM splash shields from the Lexus dealership are more than $250 plus taxes. We are offering an aluminum version that will never tear apart or fall off like the plastic version for about half the cost of OEM.
Q: Light duty version and a heavy duty version, which one do I need?
A: The answer is simple - if you are just wanting to replace your missing or broken splash shield, get the light duty version. If you plan on drifting your car or drive your car off road or in deep snow, get the heavy duty version.
The light duty versions are .032" thick which are still stronger than the OEM plastic splash shield. When mounted on your SC, it feels rigid and will do the job of keeping your engine safe from road debris. The advantage of the light duty versions is that they are only 0.6lbs heavier than the OEM plastic splash shield and they are easier to install due to how well they contour to the underbody of the SC.
The heavy duty versions are .063" thick. These are twice as thick as the light duty versions and are quite solid when installed on your SC. The heavy duty versions offer the best protection possible.
Q: How heavy are your splash shields?

Q: What are the advantages to having a splash shield on my SC?
A: Splash shields were designed on cars to protect the engine from water/snow, dirt, mud and other debris that can fling up into the engine while driving. Splash shields also help improve aerodynamics and lower road noise.
