Congrats. And thanks for the pic. It's quite well-established on this forum that these work, so I would expect a benefit of a percent or two (nothing radical). ABA testing is a fine idea.

Any more design or build details? More pics of the process?

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.

Looks like you might need some better support in the middle/center of the air dam. I found that my first ones folded over at speed.

Ok, well. This thing is too low I think. It keeps scraping on stuff. I'm going to make a new one that isn't quite as low.

I'd be happy to take more pictures. I hadn't when I was building it, but I'll do that this coming weekend when I have a little bit of time.
