Rear valance/roll pan

What is everyone doing for a smooth rear valance/roll pan ? just making their own ? or having someone do it ?
I was interested in making one for sale that people could easily adapt for their own car....
I have not really seen anything for sale. Maybe there is not a market for such an item ?


rear valance, roll pan, rear end, smooth rear end, body kit, back of z.

I’m interested in this idea. I’ve removed the rear bumper and have been thinking about the bodywork needed for a clean rear end if I go to 240Z bumpers.

I figured more than one person would be interested in a rear panel for the clean roll pan valance look.

The lower rear valence. It has a number of holes in it, with two of them being the holes for the impact bumper's shocks.

ah, so this would be a bit where we would have to cut that panel off and weld in the custom new one?

that doesnt unbolt like the front valance does to my knowledge

Well with only a couple people interested it might not be worth it to make these and sell them. I guess too many people just don't have the time or really want to put a new smooth valance on the Z car. For the people who are interested.... how much would you be willing to pay ? Just curious... I was thinking of selling these at a reduced price and basically the first few people that buy them will have to do a review on them. Give your thoughts, what could be better ? what you liked/disliked about it. That kind of stuff.
