Well I'm giving up on hauling engines in the back of my festiva.

Which means:

Boattail or closer to it. I didn't want to lose visibility so I extended the kammback another foot, and closed off the sides. I also finished the belly pan so it connects to the boattail. It's not perfect because of the exhaust being in the way but I think it should help.

My question is how much if any would I help to enclose the rear portion?

Since I can reached my goal of 60MPG at 60 MPH, I'm hoping these mods give me closer to 64-65MPG now at 60MPH.

Next mod is to put a kill switch on the alternator and see if it helps. I have 5 spare batteries at the moment so the cost is nothing.

Oh and it will be getting painted white....Can't complain about free sheet metal even if dirty.
