Howdy 19!

I was wondering if I could ask a favor. I'm currently designing a new nose to Champrius (my modded Gen II Prius) and the biggest unknown to me is how to do the air inlet that leads to the radiator. Since I've always gotten inspiration from the Aerocivic, I was wondering how basjoos designed his inlet.

Would it be possible to take some pics of the tip of the nose? Some measurements would also be useful, as well as a description if you have the time.

My current thinking is to have a rectangular area 24" by 3" open at the nose tip (which is the width of my radiator x the max airflow I need under load). Then some interior ducting to force airflow through the radiator, and some exterior aero to make the rest of the shape like the nose of an airplane wing, slightly slanted.

Thanks a bunch!

Currently building Champrius 4.0! Follow starting here:

The goal is 70 mpg this time around.
