Silver's build thread

Here's my build thread for my Mazda CX-5 which I named Silver for my fuel logs. First thing I did was air up the tires. I've settled on 49-51psi for the factory tires. I then made the Lexan wheel covers. Then came the mirror deletes.

Lexan skirts added and working. I've calculated about 6% improvement with mirror delete and grill blocks. I'm getting skirt slap behind truck eddies which will require aluminum frame from carpet threshold plates next.


Mirror deletes, 80% grill blocks, wheel covers, 50 psi tires = 6% better MPG avg. over a year. Wheel skirts overcoming ethanol winter fuel mpg losses and more!
