    Just purchased the 2011 V sedan from Tired Iron. Being a former racing fabricator couldn't stand the factory belly pan setup so I fabbed one up out of .090 aluminum and installed with Riv-nuts

    Nice. What if you curb it? How will it stand up and is it easily fixed?

    Default Front Belly pan

    What does the stock one look like?

    Personally, I would have gone with countersunk hardware, but then my background is in off-roading.

    My concern with something like this is that it may be stronger than it should be. If the new pan doesn't give easily when you hit a curb, it could cause a lot more damage that the original pan. Just saying....
