The second photo was before the tape was removed from the canopy and the stickers applied. I ran out of time to fabricate a fairing for both the rear axle and the steering arms, but otherwise I think it is relatively aerodynamically clean.

Just took a few more photos of the car in my classroom (i'm a high school teacher) which show off the side profile a little better.

Wooly, do you have any pics with the shell off? I'm curious about the frame, steering, and brakes.
