Fun project!
Unless, of course, the kammback were attached to the hatch, and sealed to the body with weatherstripping...

Legal implications for the taillights? Most states have a visibility provision in the vehicle code... outlining exactly how much (area) of your taillight must be visible from a given angle... mostly rearward, but I believe they might have something to say about your blocking light from the side/rear-angle view.

All in all, great work though.. and far less intelligence necessary to pull this off, making it a great mod in regard to effect vs. work/thought.

We all like the thoughtless mods... like we don't have enough stress in our lives to add physical permutations of fluid dynamics and airflow based on a given scale to our schedules... roffle.

All in all, a big .. can't wait for updates.
