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?

Curb it

Im sure it will have to be replaced.. It's 26 x 30 piece of aluminum that I started with. Time will tell I guess

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....
