I am going to get some of those great looking bi-xenons, just as soon as I find the money I buried in the back yard as  kid.  Okay so $3.28 is not going to do it, but it is a start.

Jealousy rages with in me :twisted:

Thought I'd add the latest UN-Mod I did to my car.. removed the belly pan. Aaagh. It has broken in so many places but finally it started dragging on the ground the other day.. do you think that means maybe my car is slightly too low? haha.

Is it a problem to be driving around without my belly pan??

Yes, get a new one.  Just try and find the old articles on CB5 about tagging bunnies and raccoons without a belly pan and what the final bill was.  Something like $200 for a belly pan or $600 - $1000 in damages.  

I think the most important aspect is that it protects the hoses and pipes down there from getting caught, it obviously wont protect a real solid impact, but then if you hit something like that the underside might be the least of your worries ;).

Thanks for the words of wisdom Jay. I may try duct tape for a while and put it back on. LOL ;)

It's also been said that with the belly pan...rushing air as your driving will push the wheel well liners back causing them to rub against the tires and eventually shred 'em

Price of a belly pan without sound proofing is around $100, with sound proofing is twice that. When my front end was hit my pan dropped and I thought it was broken, but all it needed was new fastening hardware. I am in need of some new hardware again, one of the fasteners fell out or got away from me again. Spending money on this car is a neverending story, I feel like I'm being nickel and dimed to death for the outrageous prices the stealership wants for a simple fastener or piece of plastic.......what can you do?
