I'd just make my own, but I dont think I would be able to keep my spare tire and have a tow hitch also, and the EX being my only reliable tow rig, Im gonna have to say Im not gonna fab one up for myself.

Matt, James is crazy. You don't want to race him. He will run you over before he loses to you and if he can't catch you, he'll throw beer cans at you.

lol okay, ill give it 3 weeks before the bondo cracks and it looks totaly bum-life.

i still dont see why that method of that foam/landscaping stuff wouldnt work if you used fiberglass instead of bondo? i dont really know much about fiberglass, but why couldn't u just cover the mold of foam in fiberglass and call it a day? it would be easy to make a mold with that foam stuff to look good

You can do it that way, that's how they make molds for some stuff. Give it a whirl.

Fiberglass is easy. Just get some resin and cloth, mix the resin and soak the cloth with it, and lay it down. The hard part is getting it smooth.

nick- that way sounds like it would be easier, but it wouldnt. fiberglass is really hard to "shape sand". it would be ALOT easier to just start with an F150 pan.

If all of you guys want a roll pan that bad, give Wyotech a call. They take customer projects and you only have to pay for materials. You'll have to leave an Explorer up there for a while if they don't have a comp car to use. They have a custom body fab unit where they learn how to make roll pans, and they do good work.

I'm fabricating one as we speak!! Its out of metal and the side are going to be hand fabricated. If your lic. plate is in the bumper (96-98 I believe) You could install a hideaway hitch.
Since I'm doing it after work, it'll take several weeks to get the first one out there.

I found a company that makes composite fiberglass rollpans for F150s, I may start making my own in a few weeks.
