Unsure on the liners, I think they are slightly deformed due to the way the PO installed the CF lip. The holes I think are perfect, as is everything in the panel. Yes on the two bolts, thatís why I thought Iíd try it. It will be nice to have full access to the back half.

I'd like to know how high the car needs to be jacked up to swing the service panel down and remove it.
If the tires were just a couple inches off the ground, would that be high enough?
Also, can you comment on the fitment of the joint between the main panel and the service panel. Could it be sort of rattly or is it somehow secured or in enough of a bind (for the lack of a better term) to keep it solid and quiet?

Uncle_B, I will test the access panel out this weekend (I had it up ramps and it had plenty of room - Unsure of the minimum amount to get it open)... I will say this, if it were any lower than what I had it,I couldn't fit under the car any way... so all depends on what your after. As far as the hinge area for the access door... where it inserts into the panel it seemed plenty tight to me, I had same concern... I tapped it a bit with my hand and didnt see any concerns... Thinking it will be fine... but time will tell.

ok so I took some time while on my lunch and decided to check so e if this out for you.

1. If I tap all around the panel I can get a few spots to rattle, itís faint and I canít say you would hear it if you were not right next to the panel... I guess you could do something to sound deaden it from the top side if it were audible? Iím not doing anything because I donít think itís a concern.

2. On the access panel, I am unsure of the minimum amount to lift the car to open the door. I had intended to measure the door once I opened it but my lunch seemed a bit rushed and I forgot to do it. But just so you know, the access door slides off, itís not a hinge itís slotted and you just remove it. So even if it were only a few inches off the ground you can remove the two bolts and slide it off.

Few more pics:

Omg myrddin, thanks for checking that out for us.
The extra pics really show how much more access there is with the Z1 shield.
I'm sold. My splash shield is beat to s**t and needs to be replaced anyway
