have you taken this off... If so?

have any of you guys taken any of the under plastic off under the motor and attached to the front bumper. Mines is barley hanging on there with only a few clips left. will it be OK to drive with them not being there. I live in New England so mind the weather (rain, snow, etc) thanks. 2000 gts

That's just a splash / brush guard piece. I assume it probably holds some aerodynamic properties but they're negligible. You can remove it and it wont cause any damage directly, but you will open up a new area for junk like rocks and fallen limbs to get lodged up into. If you have a CAI installed that hangs way low you will be asking for water damage.

Here are some pictures of the Celica undercarriage...

More specifically, here is the undercarriage showing just the front part with the plastics cut -- to make it easier to swap out the front bumper often...

Here is that cut-out from another angle...

The two center undercarriage plastics were cut just under the radiator, but ahead of the fasteners that keep the rest of the plastics attached, leaving those fasteners untouched. The wheel-well plastics were also left untouched, and have had no problems with them after driving through several bad rain storms and driving sometimes over 100mph/160kph speeds.
