Shows the rear control arms. The angle of the photo actually doesn't show how far down below the floor they really are.

I obviously can't shape them as a teardrop. What I meant was I will try to taper them upwards towards the rear bumper, not exceeding that all-important 10 degree angle.

Anyone want to make any guesses on what the tray is worth @ 55 mph? After seeing the effect of the unloaded roof racks on the top of the car, I'm cautiously optimistic that the tray could be significant - I'm smoothing out some serious "excrescences".
