I was going to say cardboard and duct tape, which is what I am attempting for mine. I will post it when finished.

On my thread concerning my underbelly pan, I have several comments and pics on the effect of the air/wind on moving cars.
DONOT underestimate the ability of the air to rip something off.
It peeled back gorilla tape.........

Hard to tell its there without looking for it. Total cost under $30 bux (no paint since I had some).

anyways, time will tell on mpg changes.
must have pics!!!!

Maybe you can give me some feedback on the width of this thing... had thoughts of getting out to the front fenderwell or more coverage but realized it would need more supporting framing behind it and bailed on that for this version. If there is any mpg improvement from this then I may revise it and go wider.

edit: Oh yeah, forgot to mention... it is not obvious it is there unless you poke your head under there. It sits far enough back so it does not look odd in anyway and should not impact approach angles while off road.
