damn 3/8" thats some serious farging dimpling. i cant help there. youll need an actual shop with a serious press to do that thick. i would recommend dimple dying a belly pan either. make for a pain in the ass for cleaning. it doesnt drain like you think it would.

that doesnt make alot of sense, atleast to me. why would you dimple it downward? the idea is to create a smooth high clearance design that is strong.
