Would any of the Mk3 owners be interested in a skid plate for their car? If so check out the vendor deal, group buy section. Thanks for looking.

To prevent damage to the under carriage when off roading.

Better protection and that felt is so cheap. What is the weight of the piece?

I am thinking that dry, felt is lighter, but I bet that felt, when wet, weighs MUCH more than the sheet metal.

I'm considering getting one of these!

That is true, only problem is how is it when changing the oil with that? I mean if you do it by yourself at your house, sounds like you are going to have to hold an arm and a leg to keep it in place as you screw it down. The felt piece just latches on and sticks there. Good idea for off roading but I would think our cars would get stuck more easily if we tried that..

Once I get these back into production I will make another one that has flaps that fold down to change the oil. They will secure with a bolt while in the up position. Those will be a little more due to more fab work.

Personally, I wouldn't care about the access holes as dropping the plate would not be that hard compared to the OEM felt one. What I think would be a good addition is the small hooks that let you unbolt it while it is held up as HoneyBadger mentioned. Constructive criticism
