Thought they were called dust panels, sump guards, grit guards. They don't really have a proper name tbh..... slam panel!? :lol:

I usually call them undercovers.

Well strictly speaking a sump guard is an effing great slab of metal on SUV's to protect the sump.

Engine bay dust shields.... just list those and they'll get one of them! :lol:

after reading other posts on the matter its for either road noise reduction or 4 airo dynamics of the car or ,hitting speed bumps and ripping it off or traveling at 70mph and it dropping off down the m1 :yes: anyways i am thinking of not bothering putting one back on unless i can find one cheap according to a mechanic friend of mine half the cars that go in for service havn't got it fitted anyways. :D

I was going to make mine out of Stainless Steel, held up with bonnet snaps which are so easy to undo. It'll just click down. :D

Will be a long way off though, for now I need maximum access to get to all the bits that keep breaking lol. :lol:

I will use the Bonnet Clips because the stupid plastic screws are one time use and they are buggers to remove. Just makes sense to create your own IMO. For air-flow I'll have a couple mesh grills cut out aswell. ;)

You'll need something more substantial than mesh grilles to control YOUR air flows. :help: Constant, strong & caustic they are :eek::sick::sneaky2:
