Weed barrier, aluminum tape, and plastidip. Has lasted maybe 8,000 miles and through rain so far. I wanted it to be ultralight for both rotational mass benefits and to be "soft" in the event that it failed and flew off. Here is the part of the thread last spring where I was working on it: https://ecomodder.com/forum/showthre...tml#post566865


See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
