Author Topic: Engine Under Tray Air Deflector  (Read 1914 times)

I have just noticed someone in Colchester, Essex has listed an air deflector on eBay; however they are not interested in shipping OS.
Is anyone in this region of England that may be able to assist me in shipping the item if I bid / win the item?
Of course I would cover all costs.
My car does not have one, which begs the question; apart from being authentic to the original factory build are they really of much use?
Thank you.

Hi Stephen,

I saw that too - happy to ship it for you if you're successful in buying it.  As for whether they work or not, I'm not sure!  I have one to fit, but not used it as yet - maybe someone else can chip in.

Good luck with the auction!

Cheers

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

Thanks Darren,
Knowing my luck I will forget the closing time and miss the end of the auction, but I will see how it goes.

Hi
I had an original undertray and they are really heavy, meaning you have to put a couple of bricks underneath while you fix it to the car.
I bought the GRP one from the MH which is an excellent reproduction and about a tenth of the weight.

Cheers
Chris.

Stephen

I have a TMH GRP item and it is far better (lighter and stronger) than the soggy oil soaked fibremat S2 original that I threw away. My car runs cooler with it and it helped to keep my car running through the floods on the way to Curborough one year.

Considering the shipping cost I would have thought the TMH GRP item would make sense.

Good Luck

Hi Eric,
Thank you for the advice.
I suppose if I bought one from TMH I could look at what else they could send at the same time!
Given how hot it gets in Australian summers I suspect a bit of extra air in the engine bay would be a huge advantage in keeping things cool back there.
Regards,
Stephen

 I don't have one of these (and never have actually!) Can someone take a picture of one in place on the car.

Steve H, how does this fit with your oil cooler (assume it's in the same place as before?)

Thanks

I cut a hole in the undertray and made a scoop to direct air throught he hole onto the cooler but it didn't work very wel so I took off the undertray left the scoop attached to the cooler and now it's OK.
