Can't wait to see how this turns out.
To this day, it amazes me how that a 52+ year old design can get down to a stellar cD close to that of an EV1, with only a drop in ride height, grille block, and a spoiler.
( And with such a huge change in cD at that ! .497 down to .201 ! As we have seen so many times before, you can remove mirrors, plug up grilles, do a full belly pan, full boattail etc, and only find you knock down the cD count by a few counts ! )
Meanwhile, automakes brag about spending hundreds of hours in the windtunnel to get a .28 or so cD on something.
Your Eclipse project was brilliant as well.
You really are a master at this stuff.
This is such a cool project.
Thank you, kind sir.

It's been a major undertaking, but it's starting to get closer. Should have it up and running mid-Summer. Have to thank you and a bunch other on this site for helping me out with both projects.
