Don't agree on that one... use the stock under tray and add the front splitter, don't extend it back, just be sure to support it as you mentioned in at least 4 areas (I think I'll end up with 6 supports, 4 of which come from the front two bolts on either side of the intercooler mesh).

Use 1/2" or equivalent (12mm) birch plywood.

I'll probably go with the APR one. Going with an SSP undertray for the time being. Why not just make a full underbody tray? Someone needs to already...

I would love a full underbody, but not practical for me at all... little bit overboard. Then again you can have cut-outs for oil changes that you just have to remove 4 bolts, take off panel and there's the oil filter, another panel drain plug.

Pretty sure SSP did make a full under tray, even if it was a one off they could easily make you another.

First off, awesome picture. But seriously, why keep the stock under tray there if you're going to throw a splitter in the equation. You may as well just replace the under tray with the splitter. The splitter should be easy to remove, as in a few minutes, so it shouldn't be an obstacle for any maintenance. Having supports for the rear of the splitter through the under tray just sounds like more hassle in the long run, my as well rip it out.

I'll probably make one out of alumilite.

First off, thanks. Someone tried telling me it was photoshopped, can you believe the audacity of some of these people?

Secondly, I agree with the whole routing a support through the stock under tray being somewhat of a nightmare, that's the one thing I am not looking forward to.

My idea is simple: add a piece of birch plywood to the front of the car to create downforce. Remove it after a track day and put it back on for the next one. Support it well (ie not attached to the bumper) and don't continue it as an under tray because the stock one does a good enough job and is extremely light weight.

Only real issue is what you already mentioned, I'm gonna have to go through the under tray once for each side

Fuck the undertray. Have the splitter have 2 sets of mounting holes, one that sits out a few inches as to function as a splitter, and one that is flush with the bumper as to function purely as an under tray. Schooch that bitch out a few inches on track day, put it back a few inches when you're done. Or maybe I'm too tired and it's a stupid idea. I'm sure you can make it work.
