So...now I have to figure out how to CFD test it.

I'd love to make up a bed cap for my dad's Sierra 1500.
ERTW,I need to get you to an image of Paul Jaray's original pumpkin seed car tested by Wolfgang Klemperer in 1921.It is on the internet at GOOGLE.
It is fully contoured and is almost exactly like the aerofoil-profile radome atop the US NAVY Grumman E-1 (WF-2) Tracer.
In plan view the 'Template' will have plan-taper and be continuously rounded over like a stretched version of the 1938 Schlor car.
