Undertray?

Postby Dom » Thu 03.05.2018, 21:14

Evening, All.

I was out for a drive this evening and both the passenger and I felt something impact through the footwell area. I suspect part of the undertray came away, but I’m not familiar enough with the underside of the car to verify this. I went back along the road where it happened, but could see nothing. Having said that, it was getting dark and the verge was very grassy. Does anyone have a photo or two of the underside of the engine / front bumper area so I can work out what happened?

Thanks in advance,

Dom

The only undertray that I can think of is the part that fills the gap between the front bumper and the radiator which can be seen in this picture still fitted to the car:-

Probably just a stone, fiberglass cars make more of a thud, and everything is very close to the ground.

I would suspect the skid plate indeed. Most of them are damaged. However this does not come loose easily on the car so i suspect you find just a little damage on it.
If it's broken you can repair it using epoxy, your hands and your brains.
I repaired mine recently and spray painted it black again, looks ace!
