Kammback design

Without breaking out the calculators and running to your local windtunnel for specific testing I have a vague question about Kammback design.

If you build a Kammback that compliments the sloping roofline of your car, like my Vibe, would you end it at the same point that the rear bumper ends to make a sharp 90 degree line from top to bottom? Most examples I have seen of Kammbacks end ubruptly in order to achiece that flat back look.

Just need some advice before I bust out the wooden rods and fleece for fabrication.

Thanks ..
