Default 07-08 Phazer tunnel close off plate

Another thing that always bugged me was the huge gaping hole in the tunnel right under the seat/muffler. It let TONS of snow fly back onto the boards and back of your legs. Didn't take long and the boards were one big block of ice and no room for your feet. Of course Yamahahaha and aftermarket have kits to block this off but Yammy wants $93 and aftermarket (http://www.schmidtbrosmotorsports.co...el-closer-kit/) wants $60. Well pizz on that!!!!
Went to local metal shop and had them shear me out 2 pcs of 16 ga aluminum sheets. 11 1/4"x 24 1/4". I did drill some 2" holes in it to allow some air and snow to cool the muffler a bit, not sure it's really needed but can't hurt. Run a bead of silicon around the edge and rivet it in place. Also added some heat tape to the plastic panel that hides the muffler. Done..... total cost...... $13 per sled!!!!!

I know it's a very simple strait forward fix but no reason to pay $60+... save that $$ for gas.
