Splitter materials

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here ever worked with Palight PVC plastic sheet for building a splitter/undertray? Seems cost effective (48"x24" sheet shipped for $57) and short of a temperature rating seems up to the task.


Im just seeing who, if anyone has worked witb the product and seekng if its viable for that ise case.

Concerns with plastic would be if heat will sag it, and if it's strong enough it's probably really heavy. I don't think there is a commonly available plastic that will work. If you want cheap, get 1/2" thick birch plywood. Birch is stiffer than the other types, even oak. You can buy a sheet for about $40 and replace the thing a couple times. If you're feeling ironic, stain it for a classy look.


Or pick up a NASCAR COT tegris splitter. I got one from Rousch Racing a few years ago. I think I paid $40 + shipping. It's woven like FG or CF, weight is simlar to plywood, but with a really durable wear surface. I would have used it, but was too narrow for my front end.
