Hi Sallen, Looks like a good start. I need to do this to my Golf. My Mk IV has a bunch of 15mm plastic plugs in the underbody. I keep staring up at these on my back trying to come up with a way to attach my belly pan without drilling into the sheet metal. Please post more photos as you progress and let us know if testing shows any improvement in mpg.
