Nice craftsmanship, but why does the driver's side deliver pizza and not the passenger?

I see a little bit of Shelby Daytona / Ferrari 250 GTO in that second image !


( I noticed the missing pizza pans too. What's up ? )

Nice job! That car is certainly starting to have a familiar looking profile and will certainly get you lots of strange looks out on the highway. So now there are two boattailed Civics roaming the highways. You'll find the added cargo space in the boattail proves useful when carrying long cargo in the car. One suggestion. You might want to install some running lights on the sides of the boattail near the tail end so drivers approaching from the side can see where the back end of your car is. Those taillights don't look like they would provide much visibility from the side. The boattail is the single most significant aero mod you can do on your car in terms of increased FE.

I'm curious about your the blind spot that you now have on the passenger side.
Is it really as bad as it seems ?

I see there are a few sharp-eyed folks that have noticed the missing pizza-pans. They fell victim to a particularly fast decent of the switchbacking highway out of Yosemite national park.

I need to get another pair, but I've been busy with other (boattail) stuff

Haven't had time for coastdown testing yet, but that'll be on the to-do list. Just gotta find a nice long flat stretch of road.
