    I also finished making the diffuser and the flat floor. The bumper still needs trimming but you get the picture.

    I came across a youtube vid from a race shop and I?m sure they said used 6mm alu for their floor! Seemed excessive to me, but made me wonder what kind of forces it may be under??

    1.2 to 1.5 aluminium is usually used for the floor skins but with extra bracing where you might stand to get in thats what they usualy use in all the drag cars i have looked
