Exactly. Just get the leading edges rounded off. It's a lot like a box truck, square leading edges on the box are BAD.

Truck below (as been posted here before, but photobucket ate the images) is from a report you can read: Fairing Well. It's on page 29. Rounded leading edges reduced the drag by 30%.
