Title: Undertray
Post by: donw on 17 November, 2020, 09:40:01 AM
I have recently acquired an original undertray in need of some work as there is one large rust hole and some other non original hole.

Does anyone have photos of what it should be like, inside & outside would be most helpful.

I imagine Iain Simpson might have some photos of the new ones in Kimís shed. They are not all the same. My one, on my 8th series car, is from an earlier car and the drain holes are in the wrong place.

Just got it out of its resting place, on top of the ardea...

I have no experience with Lambda undertrays, but as mine is made in aluminium I think it is a copy.  I've never even tried fitting it, so hopefully at least they did a good job of copying an original one....
It has reinforcement straps rivetted in at the back and at the sides more to the front.

If you need further details/measurements let me know, I'll leave it within easy reach for a short while.

Thanks Koen that's a great help, I don't think I'll be getting round to having mine repaired for a while still getting the engine to run and then replace the stub axles amongst other things like sorting out the front seat.

By the way, if anyone is looking for an undertray for an early car (up to 5th), I have a new unused one in aluminium to dispose of.
Shallower than the later ones.
