Alright, I finally had a free weeknight! So, I decided it should be Matrix bellypan time. Last week I picked up a 4'x8' sheet of black coroplast for this project. The front piece here took half the sheet. Not much to it really, just cut, fit, cut, fit, etc. I really am liking the results even though I didn't have enough time to fasten the back side of it yet. Darn sunlight, theres never enough of it.


Here is what we are starting with.




Here is the coroplast sheet. I used half of it for the piece you'll see below.




I took off one of the wheels and traced out where it needed to be cut for clearance. You can kind of see my pencil marks here.




This is the near final form.




And here is it fitted on the car using the jack to hold the back side in place.
