View Full Version : Any Audizine Advertisers ever feel like constructing a skid plate (metal belly pan)?

I was just thinking about this, as many like the lowered stance of thier vehicles and the plastic belly pan just does not due justice at that ride height. DieselGeek I know makes one for the B5 A4/S4 chasis and the 00-06 TT. I was wondering if any AZ advertiser would be interested in making these as I am sure there would be many interested buyers, including myself if the price were right. If I were to get it, I would just get it from Diesel Geek as the price is very reasonable. But wondering if any AZ advertiser ever indulged in the thought of metal belly pans for Audis (all chasis or ones with many interested consumers)? Thanks!

This pic is of the Panzer one from DieselGeek, to let people know what I am talking about (To any mod, if you feel that this pic violates any copyright infringement or can cause issues within AZ, feel free to remove the pic. But keep the thread alive, as I feel there would be many interested buyers if someone was willing to construct it. Thanks!)

The metal pan really is pretty pointless, because even if you have the metal pan, the mounting points are so weak that it would just rip off if you hit anything.

Yes, if it incorporated a more sturdy mounting system. I seem to constantly destroy them

That's not true, I've seen one of these purposely go through hell on a lowered car and it held up great. There are also planty of people with these skid plates on audiworld and vwvortex (2-3 on AZ that I remember) and I've heard not one complaint, aside from the price.

I'll release it for sale once it meets my standards for fit and installation.

So in other words it is going to take a little while [:D]

LOL, we need a b5 bracket like you have for the b6 and b7, and this is also a great idea.
