Writer seeking examples of tested DIY aero mods for book

Julian Edgar, former editor of Autospeed (which many here probably visited regularly), is writing a book about road vehicle aerodynamics.

Quote:
I am writing a major book on modifying road car aerodynamics. I have organised one of the top aerodynamicists in the UK to act as my technical consultant.

It will be a big book so there is plenty of room for lots of examples. I am after examples to feature of home-based road car aerodynamic modifications, where there is data available that they work (eg reduced fuel consumption, wool tuft pics of the improved flows, etc).
Please post your own threads of tested mods, or nominate others.

Julian said he may also want to get in touch with individual modders via e-mail.
