I am looking forward to some test results from this mod as I know you will be documenting any changes you see in mpg. I have been planning something similar for my hatchback but I want to keep the taillights functional so the sides would be recessed like yours. I may leave a gap at the top to see out of and have wondered if the air would re-attach.
