Default oil pan diaper

photos show a diaper I am now making.
also I think a picture of my 33 phaeton
see oil spot on floor (short drive with only 1 stop)
Fords leak one teaspoon of oil after every shutoff of engine
this diaper is made from light colored vinyl so you can see in pictures
the ones I make and sell are made from black top material
pictures show how to attach and use old polish cloth to hold oil.
remove and toss when full ( depending on use could be 2 to12 months.
I also make a small one for steering and one for rear end.
I know cardboard is another way to catch oil drips but my diaper goes wherever you go and keeps other peoples driveways clear of your drips.
( they all drip)
P.S. I wanted to post larger pictures but was not able to find out how to do it. several people tried to help but I guess I am just to old or not to good with a computer.

What speeds do you drive at? Won't it blow off at higher speeds?

will not blow off. tested at freeway speeds the type of magnets are so strong that they are hard to lift off a metal surface.

I've owned several Mercedes Benz sedans which had factory 'oil trays' under the engine which accumulated considerable drips before needing cleanout. You don't need to be embarrassed or make excuses. MB trays were molded plastic bolted to something. When I would have the oil changed they would always add 'drip tray full' to the inspection list. I was once told at highway speeds the tray was designed to 'clear'. Guess EPA had something to say about that.
