Hey Chaz, I have no problem with the added discussion at all in here. That picture looks great and pretty much what I have in mind as far as a side profile. I am hoping to be able yo be able to keep it as close to the template as possible, and maintain the curvature all the way through it. The roof of the car already has a pretty dramatic curve to it, and so I think by keeping it a smooth curve it will work better than a flat edged transition down the top of it.

As far as kamm height at the rear. I think you are pretty close. I'm pretty sure that the rims on that neon are 15" diameter, but with those hub caps, the total diameter of the caps is probably close to 16", so your guess of 7-8" seems pretty close. I would prefer the rear to be higher than lower, at least in the beginning, because it will probably be easier to take away height, than add it back on later. Plus rear visibility will be improved as height increases.
