Nice to see some work on your car.
How much will that coroplast cost you (in PLN) and what is it called in PL? Maybe I'll find a shop here in Lodz.
That kammback - weren't you able to make a radius on upper corners to make it fit the roof curvature? Hope it works nicely. I am unfortunate to have pillar mounted rear lights (Punto) so no kamm for me.
Rear wheel sections - maybe you can make inner supporting frame out of aluminium strips, bolted into inner fender?

BTW - You've stated that DRL will shave 150-200W energy consumption. As far as I know maximum power for headlight bulbs is 55W each so it's going to be 110W max. You still need position lights. However I think that changing other bulbs for LED replacements will give you some nice gain.
