|Luckily, I have no pictures of Alfa damage. |
So here is a picture to remind you to pay attention to how you lift your car!
The solution to this problem is a simple one, all you need to do is fill in the gaps between the panels and the subframe. We happened to have some stuff laying around the shop to prototype this concept. The first air gap is about 0.25" between what I will call the subframe extension bit for lack of the official term. This plate is bolted to the subframe and by way of rivet nuts, provides the places for the diffuser and engine tray to bolt to. We cut out a 5" x 5" square of 0.25" plastic to take up this gap.
|Here you can see the 0.25" piece of plastic we placed between the subframe and the plate.|
It sits flush once put in place properly.
|The black part is the piece we added.|
As indicated by the above picture, we will make a kit available for those who want to do this mod. We posted the details in this blog for the DIY crowd to make their own.
