Description: Bought the metropolis for $1100 on Craigslist with only 100k on it . Shortly after that I found the ecomodder site and have been hipermiling and aeromodding ever since.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: So far and in order: new air filter, 45PSI in tires, Rear Skirts, Front Grill Block, Scangauge, Lucas Fuel cleaner, smooth hubcaps, kill switch, partial belly-pan, deleted side-view mirror, Kammback with window, Front fender gap fillers (partial skirts), wipers/arms removed, full belly-pan extension

Planned Mods: I'm moving fast and am motivated to get my avg up to 50MPG (hard cuz I drive so much city). My next mods will be: Add some extensions to the kammback, purchased some hunter-green-metallic sign vinyl to seal up some edges around the car and make the aero mods a bitt smoother and easier on the eyes. I'd like to add small spatts in front of the tires and possibly sideskirts to channel the air between the front and rear tires (like aerocivic did). Any other suggestions?
