the front undertray section is installed... cardboard prototype. judging by the amount of cardboard i've used so far for the mock-up, i think i'm going to need another 1/2 sheet of coroplast to complete the "production" belly pans.

on a related note, my neighbour replaced a blown household hot water tank this weekend, so i may have an abundant supply of light sheet metal (his old tank's outer casing) for the parts of the middle & rear undertrays that will cover the exhaust.

i've got a bunch of short highway trips coming up in the next couple of weeks, so i'm motivated to get with the aero improvement program.
