Rear Apron/ Valance

Does anyone know where (preferably in the uk or europe) I can get a rear apron/valance with holes punched in it for cooling?

What kind of holes? Can you just get a hole saw and bore out some holes?

You could make your own die. Use hard wood and make a male and female piece with the taper in it. Drill the hole to the size you want and then put the male end on the outside and the female on the inside and tap with a hammer. Give it a shot on a piece of scrap first!

Cut the holes with a whole saw, then use this tool from Frost:

A good hole saw and that tool could be used all over your vehicle..
