Well, It turns out the problem was not the kamm back but sticking brakes. Not so much to get the wheels hot but enough to rob me of the gains from the kamm. This time it was the left rear drum.

New best of 36 mpg on the highway. MPG has been trending up.

I'm not sure when I'll have time to finish the bottom half. I did get the tail lights set up. Pics ready soon.
