Drip shield on underside of W126 300SD

I did an oil change on my '96 E300D this weekend and discovered why there's never a spot of oil under the car -- mine has a plastic drip shield under most of the car. This strikes me as a great idea, and I was wondering if it would be possible to retrofit something onto an older diesel like my '83 300SD. Has anyone done anything like this?

also a bunch of diesel Fords and one Dodge

Yes, it is possible to fabricate this for any vehicle.

A local friend makes commercial HVAC duct work, and fabricated belly pans for all of his family cars to keep the driveway clean.
