full underbelly pan for a fd

ok, i have been talking to a couple people and they seem intrested in a full underbelly pan for a FD (this would compleatly seal up the bottem of a FD). Who here would like to see one made out of CF/Kevlar?

Would you like to see it made with fins, if so how would you like them to look like.

anyone else?
Does anyone mine if to mount this one would have to bolt/drill stright in to the body?
anyone got any suggestions?

If people are intrested in this kit, please speak up, right now its seems like only 3 people are intrested, 4 including me. Note: Cost for this kit will not be over $2k (I'm not sure how much shipping will be though...)
Heck it might be under 1.5k if enuf people want it.

Right now I'm in the planning stage and am trying to get input from you guys (what ever you guys want, I will make). I have no idea about the exhaust vents and might make who ever is buying to wrap their entire exhaust system with thermotec wrap... For example, if someone suggest vents and can give me pictures of what they want, I'll include it in the kit (or at least try my best to incorperate it). (people seem to be suggesting to make vents for the exhaust system but I have no training in aerodynamics so if I just try to free hand it and make it blindly, it will probally turn out looking like *** and not work.)

I was originally gonna make it one entire peice but I recently found that nobody will ship it and people want it in 3 peices so that they can work on different parts fo the car and not need to take the entire thing off so I will be making it in 3 peices. If i can get a copy of the RE-/Amemiya rear end, use that as the rear peice while make the front two flat with fins possibly (people seem to like the front one flat just like the N1 Facer undersweephttp://rxecret7.comreamn1carfib.html or the cwest seen here http://rxecret7.com/cwesrx7untra.html) (note both of these are over 700 bucks alone, I am trying to get the target price under 2k and if enuf people get in, I might make it super low...)

I'm thinking minimum amount of people needed to get in on this is about 5 people or more.


Here is a pic of a 360modena that you might wanna take a look at http://www.ferrari.com/ferrari/image..._underside.jpg

Note: There arn't any vents for the exhaust but the engine is in the rear so... Just think about a match box car bottem and you'll get the idea.

As for mounting it, I'm thinking just drill and tap in to the body or something. Again, if anybody has any ideas for this, please speak up and let me know!

Lastly if you guy's want me to make it out of fiberglass so to save some money and lay a layer of CF over it (which is pretty fricken lame I think) I can do that for you as well.

I don't have an FD, but I've done LOTS of research on this subject (I've studied nearly every underside of every car I've ever seen...and of course the masters at Ferrari). Hopefully I can put something together that could help you out (if not though feel free to ask anything and I'll help...hell it's smart to take free help), all of the docs I had on my comp were wiped out when the operating system was updated about 2 weeks ago, but I have hard copies of most of it, not to mention that I have all of it in my head. I had some pretty crucial photos though that I miss... (Enzo, 911GT2, etc.).

Like I said if you need help...I'm here.

By the way, I have an FC.
