    Is it possible to get a VIN from a car that has this pan?
    I have emailed FordPartsUK and they have asked.

    Does anyone have a UK VIN just so we can use the parts web site for things like tow point hardware?

    Next email I will ask about that as well.

    We now know that this belly pan is only on the 2014 Fiesta 1.0L Eco Boost, Diesel.
    At the current rates the part is 86.00 and the shipping is 97.00.

    The one I made from coroplast cost about $20 in parts/hardware.

    Very interested at that price point Dave :)

    Now we just need to find out if it fits or can be made to fit.

    Well It can be made to fit.
    Because the US cars have a different bumper, the underside is not the same as well.
    So an adapter needs to be fabricated.
    You can use the little air-dam as a template.


    I used a piece of ABS plastic I just happened to have.
    After marking the front edge you can draw out the back edge.


    Next some additional trimming for tabs and holes for the pan.
    The finished piece looks like this.


    Add Speed-Nuts and install.


    Now install the Pan.

    Damn thats looks good Dave. Curious to know if it affects oil, water, intake, charge temps.

    Dave, the material of the pan look fibrous, similar to the wheel well guards. Is this correct?

    Yes, the Pan does appear to be some kind of fibrous material.
    I am not sure what it is.
    However the fender liners appear to be just ABS plastic.

    Where the hell did you get a sheet of ABS that big and how did you cut it? If I'd known I could buy that I'd have done my own splitter ages ago

    ABS comes in 4' x 8' sheets and up to 1/4" thick.
    T have two shops in my neighborhood that stock it.

    Jig saw, band saw, hand saw, etc.
    Any saw that will cut wood works, just change the blade.

    One product to look for is Boltaron sheet, its better than kydex, can be thermo-formed and is available in 4*10' sheets.

    Not terribly cheap but easy to work and impact resistant even at cold temps.

    Cut with a table saw, skill saw, band saw, razor saw, hole saw and finish by sanding the edges, flame polished edge optional.

    My front fenders are ABS, the rear liners are fibrous. Either way, an interesting choice for the belly pan. Obviously lighter, but wonder about the longer durability.

    Yes it does look similar to the material used on the rear fender wells.

    If it's the same material as rear fender liners it holds up very well, my 2002 SVT has fiber rear fender liners and they're still in perfect shape after 10 Minnesota winters.

    The point of this pan is aerodynamics for reduced drag from air under the car improving gas mileage right?

    That's what I thought as well.
    Apparently Ford only thinks this is true on 1.0 L diesel Fiestas as that is the only model this part was designed to fit.

    Personally I am now getting over 90 MPG but then I now only drive down hill.
