Ditch mufflers, dump at diff or under battery area and open up or delete diffuser.

I still will...
It's not quite that simple. The pan is not flat, you'll need a metal brake to put a slight bend in the first section to follow the contour of the frame. Secondly, you would need to incorporate NACA ducts in the rear section. I made a set out of fiberglass by building a mold from the ZL1 pan.

Right now I'm renting a town house while my new house is being built. My templates I made are in storage. If I can get to them in the next few weeks, I might be willing to make a paper pattern. As for the NACA ducts, I don't have the means to make any at this time. I'll generate the parts list and give tips on how to make it.

I used 0.040" aluminum. I would not go thicker. It will cost about $200 for the materials and tools to build it. This doesn't include the time/materials for the duct.

I have a brake but if it's too big for mine which I bet it would be (36" brake) I have a sheet metal shop that can make me anything a few blocks from my fire house. The ducts if I had a plug I can lay myself. If not I would buy some. Or I bet something can be fabbed out of aluminum.

I just remember your thread and thought you did one hell of a job. I would like some of that on my car.

Seriously though man if you are willing to help out I would be down to pay. I'm planning on doing aero stuff next early year.

I'll see what I can come up with. I'm not here to make or lose money. If others come up with ideas, especially with the rear diffuser, I would rather share the wealth than make money on this. I did it because I can.

Your 36" brake will work, just make sure it can bend 0.040" thick aluminum. Seriously I would not go thicker. I bought a T6061 4 x 12' sheet from a local metal supplier. For most of you the metal can be found on the Internet from a bunch of suppliers in smaller pieces. Here's an approximate of what you would need. Now don't go out and buy it yet until I confirm the sizes again. But for budgeting here's what you need:

24" x 33"
67" x 19"

Well I would never look for something for free. I have no problem with you making something for your trouble either.

Let me know man. I have time like I said it's an early next year plan. I could go right now if necessary though. Whenever you are ready.
