Default Engine / underbelly guard for Safari?

Last week accidentally I found out while washing my safari that the engine guard is missing and the underbelly has been left exposed.

I realised that that the TASC people have forgot to put it back after the last service.But on confronting them they never accepted.And on top of that when I told them to get a new one fitted,and I am ready to pay for it, pat came the reply
"Sir, we dont have stock of engine guards and under belly protectors.No one usually asks for these kind of spares"

So I have decided to get an underbelly cover fabricated for my safari myself.

From what I understand is that this need not be as thick as the skid plates.
I searched this forum but all the specifications I can find are for the skid plates.I do not want to burden the already 2 tonne truck with more load of the skid plates.

So wanted to know if any thin aluminium/tin sheets will do?If so what are the specifications.Also what are the side effects involved?Heating?Safety?

And is any bangalore t-bhpian aware of any local garage who have the skills to get one fabricated and fixed/installed.

And above all, how much would it cost me.

EDIT:
Mods, typo in the title.Please change it to engine instead of enginer.

TASS can order it for you right with some advance money paid.....

that would be better and still cheaper I guess because anyday if anything happens these TASS guys will start cutting corners with excuses on warranty for irrelevant reasons....

Check with other TASCs for stocks of the guard, it will be always better if you go in for the OE cover, fabrication can be done for specific purposes or in case the OE is completely unavailable.

Go to a different TASC.
But, take the current TASC to task !

Thanks Rajeev and Lukeskywalker.
Would try to get it ordered if hopefully such an option exists.

Already took them to task for losing my previous engine guard.but all they would do is hang their heads in dissappointment cutting a sorry figure.Anyways till now I have recieved a good service from them.So I would rather take this in the spirit.
