Vibe Aeromods V1.0 - infinity

Ok so I have started the aeromods on the Vibe, stage 1 is simple, seal off unecessary holes and see what happens.

Well as you can see by the pics, I sealed off the grille and the fogs, also removed the roof rack, which uncovered an unpleasant issue.

Looks like the Vibe, unlike the matrix was not intended to be without a rack. What impact do you think this will have on the grand scheme? Should I put the cross bars back on? I'm sealing open holes otherwise and any water falling through the hole simply drains through the hatch, so those are not my concerns, the aero impact is ... your thoughts ??

Next week if this works the holes will be covered with proper blocks likely made from abs plastic ...
