So I managed to ground loop my '11 GSA exiting a snot puddle in the middle of the Everglades yesterday..of course as I flew one way and it the other, I was lucky enough for both the LS valve over and my right knee to impact the only half buried limestone boulders in a quarter mile radius. It mashed, then peeled the guard off like an aluminum can and only put a few gashes in the actual cover. I suppose I can say it kinda did it's job. I've searched the usual places, any recommendations on valve cover protection besides factory for newer GS' ??
