Wait... so you mean I can just make my AWD into a 2WD by removing a few parts? Wow, what MPG savings did you get out of that?

Ok, small update. I made a scale model of the trailer enclosure I'm going to build. I also went to Lowes and bought the FRP. Wow, it's super flexible. At first I thought I was going to have to make a pointed or blunt nose. Now I'm going to make a sort of tear drop out of it.

The images suck b/c I used my macbook camera, but I can at least count the number of joints, and better approximate the amount of PVC I'll need.

I also have to give credit where it's due. I got the FRP idea from finding this write up of a nose cone on a RV:
