this is great. i can't wait

this is great. i can't wait to do up my car. then we can all take our cars sledding in deep snow! or join those crazy snowmobilers who skim over open water!

glad you used aluminum. i read a post on an EV forum this week about a guy who used coroplast under his car. his motor controller overheated and spat a small piece of metal down on the plastic pan. it caught fire. (someone driving by noticed: "hey, your car's on fire.")

he wisely used the adrenaline surge to rip the sheet of plastic from under the car before it burned everything up. close call.

I am hoping my linoleum

I am hoping my linoleum doesn't catch fire. I cut it out around the exhaust and there;s nothing else it's near that's hot so yeah.

Where'd you get the aluminum and what gauge?

We don't have snow here. It's still not finished, it's all ghetto annd I think it will fall off. I'm going to redo it if the results are good.

I got the metal from Home depot. The piece was 3 foot by 4 foot for like $11. I don't know what gauge but it's pretty thin. It's still thick enough where it doesn't want to bend.

Good job! I think I'll be

Good job!

I think I'll be doing this as soon as my engine swap is done. I'll do a front and rear belly pan, or maybe even a full on whole body belly pan. After that all I need to do is find a way to make wheel skirts and I'm in business
