Driving doesn't have to be a drag!

Hey everyone,

I'm converting a 1969 Datsun mini-truck from gas to battery electric and so I am in some serious need of aero-tuning.

I've got some sane and some crazy ideas. Hopefully we can flesh some of these ideas out on the forums.

Welcome to EM. That sounds like a neat idea to me. I owned a 1970 PL521. There are plenty of others here who will have ideas for you.
