Here is one way to add a removable cover to the hole in the belly pan on the V8s. I bought a V6 belly pan and cut a cover out from it. The V6 belly pans don't have the hole but are a solid piece but the indentation from where the hole use to be are still there. I just cut along the indentation and cut out a cover and pop riveted a few pieces of metal on to act as a hinge. Then used a left over bolt and clip from the skid plate installation and that's it no more belly pan hole. Fit fairly well since all of the cover curves and indentations match the hole that is there. Not a big deal just one of those little things that annoyed me and I wanted to cover it up for those days on the beach. Mine is a 2014 but I think the earlier WK2s use the same.

Good idea. I've been of the beach over a dozen times, but have been afraid to look and see what's in there. I'll see if I can take a peek when I get my first oil change.

Since there is no hole in my belly pan, are you trying to say that the folks at JNAP installed the incorrect V6 belly pan on my V8 Summit?

If so, time for a buyback.:D

LoL I think you were one of the lucky ones because you got a solid one with yours and I got the one with the hole :) I didn't take the one off of my V8 to compare it exactly to the V6 before I cut it, but I did compare it somewhat and I think they are the same, one with a hole and one without. But I cant say for sure so no guarantees. I was actually thinking of just throwing the solid one on there when I got it but then I saw the indentations on it so decided to do a little cutting.

There is a new pan, somebody posted pictures, that doesn't even have the outline for the door. It seems they stopped putting the doors on and claimed they were unnecessary, until they ran out of the pans with the openings.

Did you install a J-clip to thread the bolt into or just drill a hole in the existing plastic shield and thread it in?
I drilled a hole and used a U-nut if I remember right. I put that covervon about 8 years ago but its still in place and works fine.

This is by far the best cover I have seen!
