Very cool. I think you would be better off NOT rounding any trailing edges. GM has reduced drag on the Volt by putting a sharp edge around the periphery of the trunk. See here.
I'm talking about the very trailing edge, not the 'shoulders' like MetroMPG was addressing. I agree with him that a radius 'shoulder' would be beneficial.
