That big chunk missing from the front tire should help with rotating weight!

yeah that was hurried... so the pattern for the aero headlights goes off for metal working tomorrow.. along with a headlight cover (barndoor) my aero headlights will be coming.

I got some free coroplast from work... (yes I work at a shell station... funny huh? it's that that is much of my inspiration for doing mods that will help performance and retain or improve fuel milage) so I will start designing my mini Kamm-back and deck extension spoiler will probably make them aluminum and adjustable.

Thought of something the factory can't/won't do. Taping up seams on the front of the car. Of course, some people like opening their hood on occasion.

Put loose foam strips in all the seams, close the hood, trim the excess. That'll fill in the gaps.

Of course, those gaps are probably the lowest drag inducing object you could find on the car.

already in the plans and at the front of the hood as well.

may check the leading edge door seams as well.

no boat tail though... don't want it to look like a cicada in heat... lol
