Post subject:  180sx Type X underbody tray - wanted


My underbody tray which sits beneath the engine bay and is bolted to the stock front bumper has recently committed suicide (finally fell off while I was on the track and dragged along Sandown for a lap) - one of the bolts has fallen out and the hole has torn so would need to redrill. The type X version is also different from the non-type X 180sx tray, but I'm not sure if it shares the same part as an S14 or S15.

These are apparently hard to come by second hand according to the few sources I've tried (Silvia specialist and Panel Beater) and cost a fortune brand new from Nissan.

I would like to get it replaced because I do a lot of interstate travel and would like to avoid rocks/animal guts getting flicked into the engine bay.

Has anyone tried replacing this part? Is looking at half cut 180sx' viable?

Any suggestions appreciated,

Can you describe or post a pic?

Today another chunk fell off my underbody tray :( The thing is currently held to my car with cable ties...

Does anyone know of maybe a car yard or somewhere which might have front cuts of Silvias?
