Planning Aero Mods

Ok so as I fine tune my driving and EOC - i thought i would begin the brainstorming on what Aero mods i think would be biggest impact.

I have some areas in front i can close up ( holes for fog lights i do not have) - as well as Upper radiator area ( big bottom area still open)

I like the idea of the rear wheel skirts - and think that will integrate will with the car.

Overall lowering of the car a little as well.

One area i want to throw out there is the rear of the car.
This is a sedan - and there are a lot of discussions on boat tail / Kammback's here...

Has anyone thought through modiftying a seden to a Kammback style? fill in the area from the window to the end of the trunk? This would be the LAST item i would actually get to as this is a bit involved - but for your senior guys / advanced modders, is this something reasonable? in theory it sounds good - but in practice ( as i am very much a noob) wanted to bang on it a while.

Thanks for your inputs
