Looking good, BZP. I can't wait to see test results. But I hope those sides rely on more than just tape to hold them. If (IF) tape starts to fail the whole thing could come apart before you could even stop. Even if flying coroplast didn't harm any vehicles behind it could freak out another driver and you'd be liable (sucks). Hopefully your well ahead of me there.

Cheers

Thanks fer yer concern. Yes, I have some truss head screws on there. I've probably used over 250 of them on my project so far. Already had someone taking piccies of my truck today.

BZP, do you think moving the skirts to the frame after the rear axle is hurting more than helping? Looking at the civic project in the same forums, there was a lot of work done to reduce tire turbulence.

I'm not sure...I'm basically separating the air flow from the middle of the truck and the tires.

I still have to build my "aero mud flaps" to taper the air flow from the rear tires. I've still got a lot of work left in those areas. I've got my "heat tunnel" I need to finish at some point in time as well.

I've got a 2001 GMC 1500 that I'm looking at modding, so this is a very interesting thread. Giving me great ideas for next summer. Looking forward to some real results with these latest mods. Thanks and keep up the good work.
