Hi Rocky

But is the stronger OEM pan strong enough to take a hit from a rock
embedded in the road?  From what I saw of it, it looks like it is
about twice as thick as the original and made out of fibreglass
reinforced plastic.

The road to get to our cottage has one or two spots where if I am not
careful, I will hit the oil pan on rocks.
