Rennline Prototype Lab | Mini Cooper Skid Plate

Last Friday (2/23/18) Rennline engineer Dave and lead fabricator Gene teamed up with Robert Mohns from Massachusetts to design, manufacture, prototype, and install a finished skid plate for his Mini Cooper F-Series. We plan to have these available to pre-order at Rennline.com by March 1st!
