I thought about it, but I think I'll sort out my undercarriage drag first.

Also, some gaps migh be better filled with building foam, sanded and filled with body filler, then painted. Door gaps for instance. I haven't done it, just an idea, so don't take my word for it. The door's edge might be covered with packing tape as protection and a release agent.

But the above is only an idea, haven't done it yet.

Is there any pics of your project aside the one you have in the signature?
uh... I don't think I'm going to take it that far... just tape-sealed gaps for me

and pics of my air dam are here: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...over-4971.html
