pics of VX's underbody

I don't have any means to lift my VX and I'd be interested in what it looks like underneath to think of some belly pan ideas. I saw some pics on the internet of a racecar they were gonna race with in Death valley and that sure had a nice belly pan on it. All aluminium I believe. Would that be the material to use if cost wasn't an issue (don't we all wish it wasn't)?
Anyways, if somebody could post some pictures of their VX's underbody that would be great!

All cars come with neat tools for changing a flat tire. One of these tools is a jack for lifting the car off the ground so high you can look underneath it!

This is the view from under the front of my VX.

I had already put Coroplast under there. The factory underside isn't too rough.
Here is the factory rear diffuser at the back side of the vehicle.

And Here is another shot with my new exhaust from the back of the car.

Tom , did you notice any benefit after the belly pan -real or percieved ?
More manufacturers should use the rear bumper filler - otherwise it leaves a big ol' parachute back there!

The bottom of the VX is pretty smooth to begin with. What I felt was more stability at highway speeds and less jolting from crosswinds on said highways.
