More tufting

Did some tufting with the driver's side wheel skirt in place - just wanting to see where I'm at again.



Probably boat-tailing the wheels is the biggest thing I see here. Also I think I see turbulence on the wheel skirt, perhaps because of the dish and I didn't put the half-moon hub cap on here for some reason. Also seeing a bit of turbulence at the c-pillar transition onto my Kammback. Perhaps a similar bit of turbulence going from the tail light to the coroplast gap filler.

Anyways, room for improvement.

(Video will be uploaded in a minute, for the curious
