I have made a simple modification which makes oil changes at lot easier on my Lag II. I cut a small section of the undertray out about150mm by 150mm square just in line with the sump plug. Drilled some 6 mm holes in each corner of the cut-out piece and similarly in the undertray. Using nylon cable ties I was able to fix the cut-out back into position. Now when changing the oil I just need to cut two if the cable ties and hey presto a little swing down door opens to allow access to the sump plug. Whilst it may cost the price of two cable ties (50 pence max.,) it saves me money in the long run - no more frayed tempers but the wife is complaining the funds in the swear box is geeting kinda low
