I used 1.5mm [0.06"] thick aluminium for the belly pan, which I afixed to the main frame rails with self drilling screw covered with silicon sealent to prevent rust. What you need to do is take a look around under the vehicle and see where it would be conveniant to attach. I would take some pictures of what I have done, but there is over 20cm of snow on the ground.
On one section at the front I instaled a peace of pressure treated wood onto which I could scew the aluminium panels.
I had a sheet metal shop make some angle peaces for the section behind the rear wheels.
What it all comes down to is each vehicle is different and needs its own solution...
