Rear Belly Pan DIY Fabrication :

That's it! after 7 hours of cruel back laying, the rear belly pan is complete! The result is excellent. We will do the center pan soon. Same thing as the frontal belly, made of coroplast and duct tape. used the cinder blocks to jack the car. (put them the other side, for more safety than the last time.)

Here are some pictures of the rear underside of the car :


The pan :


The rear belly pan :


For the muffler, we put some screen so it can cool and to deflect some of the air.


Other thing :

C'est pas grave, on a eu ben du fun! Il y avait une simulation dans un kiosque de CAA Québec, c'était pour l'écoconduite, la moyenne des gens était de 8,8 LHK, et le Highscore était de 6,9 LHK, lorsque nous sommes partis, la moyenne était de 8,5 LHK et le Highscore était de 4,9 LHK! Nous avons obtenus le même score tous les deux. Bref, c'était bien! Désolé cependant, nous n'avions pas de caméras au salon malheureusement...

(English) :
It's okay, we had fun! There was a simulation in a CAA Quebec stall and it was for eco-driving, the average was 8.8 LHK, and LHK Highscore was 6.9, when we left, the average was 8.5 LHK and the highscore was 4.9 LHK! We obtained the same score both. In short, it was good!

Other thing, on the HWY the last day, the hole in the grill block got stuck because of snow, (We had previously taped a screen to protect the radiator from rocks). The fan was kickin all 4 Mins, we were obligated to stop and remove the screen... This proove us something tho, the screen used near the muffler is really deflecting air!

We will work to upgrade the rear belly pan, new pictures soon!

Rear Belly Pan Upgrades

Rear Belly Pan Upgrades :

We have worked today to improve the efficiency of the rear belly pan. We have retouched the belly in the muffler zone, by screwing the screen instead of just taping it. We have reshaped the little part of the belly so it fit nicer and to remove gaps.

Some Pictures :
Here is the difference between the older part and the newer. Look at all the dirt! :

Here is the rear belly with the new part replaced and with better quality duct tape :

Compared to an older picture :

Rear Wheel Arch Mud Flaps

Rear Wheel Arch Mud Flaps :

When we realized that the rear belly pan was acting like a parachute, and that dirt was accumulating, we decided to make arch mud flaps, with coroplast dans duct tape, as always!

Took us about 1 Hours by side and with no such effort. We screwed the flaps to the rear belly pan for more strenght and durability.

Here are some pictures :

Passenger side Rear Wheel Arch Mud Flaps :


Driver side Rear Wheel Arch Mud Flaps :

We had to work differently for the driver side because of the gas tank pipe and the light cables in the way.

We have started today the center belly pan. But we have noticed alot of oil in the engine bay. So we removed the frontal belly pan to examine. We don't know if it is from the oil pan, the filter or from another leak. I'm hoping it is not this. It is the first time that the car have Syntec oil, and syntec oil is thinner, so we don't know if the problem was anterior or after the oil change.

Frontal Belly Pan Upgrades

Frontal Belly Pan Upgrades :

Now that the oil leak is gone, we have replaced the Frontal belly pan. Did some upgrades to it. Instead of being duck taped to the bumber, it is now only screwed. We realized that removing it was using alot of tape. So to keep it gapless, we put some weatherstripping tape.

Here some pictures :
Look at the WST




And the final result, look at the center belly pan frame


Before upgrade :
