Thinking about taping the gaps from the hood to the fenders maybe even around the headlights...what is a good inexpensive tape that won't damage the paint. I mainly want to use this only on long trips so I won't leave it on over a few days or a week at the most. Thanks

I am posting here because I don't want to make a thread just to ask a question, and this seems like a great place to link it with.

I recall an image on here that compared (I believe Porsches) vehicles with different modifications, and how they affected drag. I know I saved it, but since I have 400+ subscriptions, that wasn't as handy as I thought. lol

I did try searching, but I did not find anything. If anyone recalls this, or knows it's location, please post it here

Edit:

To clarify, this was the same vehicle w/ modifications done and the effect of each one, as in Cd as normal, w/ air dam, w/ splitter, w/underbody, w/two things, so on.

Search "porsche 914 site:ecomodder.com" on Google. A 914 owner was a teacher, and every year for a few years his class did a study on the aerodynamics of his car.
