No problem - it's very interesting to me too, and fun on top of all that.

A couple more photos, FYI:

I think it's important to repeat that this was a super quick 'n' dirty "fabrication" using the a pretty conservative 10 degree top & sides angle. It could no doubt be optimized for even better results.

But not by me! I've got my own car to work on...
