[Healeys] Oil drip protection

A few years back I had two drip-trays made of flat galvanised steel.


Each is 6 ½ ft long and 2ft wide with a lip all round of ¾ inch.


Both work well and while the BN3 has all the normal Austin-Healey leaks from
the engine, gearbox/OD and diff, the Healey Saloon has very few.

Most auto parts stores sell oils pans for under the car. You will need two.

We just got a new fancy brick driveway and there will be hell to pay if I
drip oil on it.  just wondering what people use to protect the surfaces on
which you park.  Preferably, I would like something that I could just slide
under it when I park, and pull it out before I leave. Most things I've seen,
if I leave behind when I pull away, will just blow away. I only have a
couple of drips and I kind of know where they are, so I wouldn't need
something really huge. I'm thinking maybe a cookie sheet, or something like
that. I just wanted to see what are the options people use.
