    I had it made. I took some measurements off the stock pan and the crossmember. I made some drawings and had a machine shop carve it out of a solid piece of aluminum.

    U are the creator of this good idea.
    But, I would choose to loose that qt. to get that drain plug up & out of the way. Any crash bar U put on will only lower the ground clearence more , causeing more bottom drags.
    How much do U want for that 1st one? Big O

    If you go look at the pics again, you will notice the lower a frame pin points are lower than the oil pan. Also the two long axis structural members are about (not quite) the same depth as the oil pan. You do not need much to protect the oil pan from a front hit. Even as it sits, it will clear a standard 4" curb.

    My wife drives a Z06. This is the mat that goes in the hatch portion. Sun fades them pretty fast. I get the old ones and use them for working under the vehicles.

    i can tell you guys without a doubt that coupes oil pan, is great, i installed mine about a week ago...and its better in person than in pics...
    came in with all the hardware etc...

    i will say this, removing the studs that hold the pick up tube was a little bit tedious, removing the ones (2) that hold the oil pan...was a @$%^...obiously i didnt have the right tool for it....49 bucks later its was all good....although in the process i broke one of the outside studs...so my oil pan is being hold with one less screw....ill probably have to remove the oil pan again to take that one out....
