Does anyone have an idea for a skid plate to protect the underside of the front trunk? The transition between the driveway to my home as well as the one at work to the roadway is such that I scrape the underside of my car every day, regardless of how slow I drive. Eventually, I'm going to wear through the undercoating as well as the fasteners holding the bumper.

I was thinking of gluing lexan (or similar) pieces at the touch points; sort of like knee pucks on my Alpinestars suit, except they'd be flat 3"x4"x.25" pieces. Any other ideas?

Thanks! I'll look into this one. It may help some, but the scraping is occurring further back; at the bottom of the trunk as shown here ...

If I was doing it I would probably cut out a single wide flat piece of plastic and heat it up until it can be bent to match the contour of the existing piece. As far as mounting I would have to see the existing part close up but I would probably do sunken rivets or hex bolts. It might be hard to get glue to work well and it wouldn't be easily removable/replaceable.
