Fix or replace?

This damage to my rear under tray has been present since I bought the car and was noted in the PPI. I keep the 360 on a lift and park my DD under it so I see it everyday and it's really starting to annoy me. Back when I had the PPI, I was told this type of damage is pretty common. Based upon the condition of some used trays I've come across this seems believable.

E.G.

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

In any event, is this something you'd get repaired? Or just continue a search for a used tray. Given that I have the lift, the tray swap seems like it would be fairly easy. If the latter, any ideas on where to look for these types of parts (in the US) as that one I noted on ebay right now is not that impressive.

I attached a picture of mine.

As always, thanks in advance to the brain trust here

Reminds me of my daughter when she wanted a nose job. She said when she looks at her at a certain angle it bothered her.

I said if it bothers you then get it fixed ... suggest the same.

Sounds like a perfect holiday gift

I see that I wasn't really as clear as I should have been. I am going to do something about it (get the nose job, lol) To clarify, my real question is do you think the tray itself is repairable at a body shop, or should I just find a replacement? I'm guessing the replacement is the way to go...

Easily repaired at a body shop. If the knowledge that the under-tray has been repaired bothers you I guess you could hunt for a non damaged item and still have this repaired so that it does not "glare" at you every day.

If you don't mind your mistress wearing a sewn up thong have it repaired

When I had a 360 I did a number on the undertray and the body shop was able to repair it. Not very expensive either.

It's the type of thing that would bother me. I'm not sure what it's like where you are but I'd be confident of being able to buy a second hand tray over here in the UK for very little.

Taking the old tray off is an easy DIY but getting it back on again is a little more difficult if you don't have a ramp...

My vote: Replace it.

Should be able to find an affordable one from a parts house or a dismantler.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

They are expensive new (around $1500). The are large and expensive to ship. With that said I have yet to see a good one come in on any of the wrecked cars I have bought. They can be fixed or repaired. I have had many of the under panels and wheel houses repaired at a reasonable cost. I think your 2 options are to spend a few hundred to fix or buy new.

and a second pair of hands to hold it straight.

Mistress and thong are much easier.
