Right... Finally got the bugger on!

I built some brackets and bolted them to the tray, then bolted all three panels under the car. I mostly used existing bolts for the exhaust etc to attach the brackets to.

At the rear I spaced the rear edge of the tray down from the bumper using long bolts and bits of copper pipe.

Because the tray covers the rear silencer (with a hole cut out for the exhaust pipe tip) I built a heat shield with a hammer, out of some scrap aluminum I had lying about. It separates the plasic from the silencer.

I've tested it to motorway speeds and nothing has fallen off yet...

Looking forward to results.
