Finally! The ticking sound is gone.

Went for a drive and normally when I start up and do a trip long enough to fully warm the car, I'll loose .2-.3 mpg when the tank is around the half mark.

This time I picked up .1 mpg.

The rear covers still need to be finished since the front was a 'test' to find out what I needed to do to get them to quick ticking. But, the fronts, combined with the 3/4 skirts are worth 3 mph at the end of a coast. Pretty big gain.

Conditions were windy so I'm not sure it the coast points I tested were benefiting or not from wind.

Will finish them up tomorrow if possible and then start work on the lower block and another aero project.
This ain't a war, anymore than a war between men and maggots. Or, dragons and wolves. Or, men riding dragons, throwing wolves at maggots!
