I just looked at Google.Only a very small photo,which if enlarged might be so pixelated that it might be useless.
Can you borrow a digital camera with 10X optical zoom and get a photo from 100-meters from the side?
I'll look at my rats nest at home.Can't promise anything.

You don't need a template. Start at the back of the roof, and make a gradual curve down to 15 degrees or so, as far rearward as you're willing to go.


The atmosphere doesn't give a crap about templates. It only cares about conditions in its immediate vicinity.

some data,no photo

I struck out on a decent photo so you're going to have to be the boss of that.
I did find a road test review for a '91 Sentra SE-R by CAR and DIVER:
*Length--------------- 170.3 "
*Height--------------- 53.9 "
*Frontal Area--------- 20.2 sq-ft
*Curb Wt.------------ 2,594-lbs
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
*Road horsepower @ 30 mph------------- 4
*"--------------- @ 50 mph------------- 12
* " ------------- @ 70 mph-------------- 28
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
My CRX uses:
* 2.97 hp @ 30 mph
* 8.55 hp @ 50 mph
* 19.5 hp @ 70 mph
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your Sentra has more frontal area than the CRX,but if you followed the 'Template' further out with a longer tail you could match its drag and mpg.Low 60s.

Yeah I have the 1.6 liter. Areohead thanks for the info. When I get some free time I'll see if I can find a decent pic or I will get some of mine. I'm working 60+hours every week right now and just don't have a lot of free time but have been working on my EOCing on my commute to and from work. Gonna track my mileage on next fill up!

Winkosmosis. I am a visual learner so I like to see stuff and like to know what it will look like before I do it.

I went to tirerack to find a good side view but they only had the generic "shadow image" for your car/year, . Get me a good side view with no perspective distortion and I will work on it.
