I have a bit of styrofoam that I'll be using in mine. Once my testing is done, I'll cover the styrofoam in bondo and permanently attach it. See my post on the permanent grill block to see where I'm at now.

I'm thinking of a ramp-like shape that slopes out on the sides as well. This should move the air out to either side and down.
You might also want to look at Dr.Alberto Morelli's CNR 'banana' car of 1978.
The wheel treatments lowered the car from Cd 0.35,to Cd 0.201.
