Default Everest 10 skid plate

I just bought an Everest 10 crawler to enjoy my quarantine. This is my first crawler and im hooked as its a blast to drive. Im looking for a differential skid plate as mine is scuffed up pretty good already. Ive seen them for the Gen7 pro and also scx10. Does anyone know if there is one for the Everest 10 or one that may fit with a little help? How about any custom ones? Looking for ideas,thanks.

To answer my own question I bought Red Cat Everest Gen 7 Pro axel skid plates as I did not see any for the Everest 10. I had to modify the area behind the diff case on the Gen 7 plates due to the curve in them and my diffs having more of a flat plane on the bottom of the diff. I hammered them flat and mounted them, measured where the diff ends and bent the end of the skid plate up to avoid catching(did almost the same mod on my offroad golf cart). The mounting holes on the skid plate matched up with my diff and I was able to reuse the stock screws although they will be replaced with just slightly longer screws in the future. They work perfect, do not catch at all and will save my axels from wear and breaking. Im having issues uploading more pics and will try in a second post
