I'm pretty sure you could make a newer and better one for that price, unless it has to be a factory item?

Thanks for the offer Salty, being in brisvegas it would be nice to find one locally but if there is no joy I will let you know.
I need a standard one to exploit the rules to form an underway in conjunction with a tray on the front spoiler to stiffen it up and then have the inflow continue under the car with a smooth transition to the stonetray. If I use a non standard tray I have to drill 50mm holes to minimise the airflow under the car I am chasing.

It looks to be a pretty easy retrofit, and will hopefully allow me to exploit a small loophole in the 2B rules for production sports cars.

these screws do tend to break easy BUT thats good as the metal is soft and easy to drill out
grind whats left till its flat, that will make it easy to drill
the hex head self tapper is easy to find, off the shelf,
If you are going to that trouble why not retap the holes to M6? Bloody self tapping screws

Tek screws are my friend, though my car is circuit only so too far gone to worry about being a purest. They hold rear hatch perspex in perfectly.
Tek screws to me are good for holding fences together or for young guys who want to mount a wing on the back of their commodore, but when I attach things to the zed, I always try to use the original screws / bolts; anything else is a tad too "ghetto" if you know what I mean.

Can some one tell me when the stone tray became a standard Z item? Do they bolt onto the bottom of the chasis rails or the side? I have an early build number and my chasis rails appear not to have any allowance for them. I presume I could retrofit one?
Weird I thought they all had them too. At least my 73 did, my 72's is missing so I need to find another myself. However I was always under the impression it was fitted to all cars and over the years they went missing.
