I really like the effort, and I hope it produces enough power to have a significant impact. I have an idea, looking at your snaps. Is the angle of the panel off "the template" a little? If it is I bet you can adjust it fairly easily. Then maybe this is a nice opportunity to build a kamm back, consolidating a gain. I wonder if the over-hang out the back is increasing drag for you. Have you considered a kamm?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
