Thanks for posting that. Just yesterday in another thread I was lamenting the fact we haven't seen a full boat tail (on a Metro) lately.

Do you have construction pics? That show the internal structure (if any?). What do you do about tail light and the license plate?

I'd be curious what it is like living with it. Parking and & etc.

Are you saying the profile is as good as its going to get and I won't see much improvement modifying the boat tail anymore? Therefore, I need to focus on the rest of the car.
Get some test results (coast-down or whatever) before other mods. To isolate the gain from that one modification.

As for 'as good as its going to get', consider truncating it less than a foot. See the Peter Brock Cobra Coupe or Dave Cloud's Dolphin.
