Upgraded high beams for those dark back roads. Wonder how much fuel 65w burns over 55w over time lol

We did it boys! 89 mph in Idaho empty interstate into a 14mph headwind with stronger gusts! First time getting the Ioniq into the 20s for mpg over a 50 mile course! No side mirrors either!

Just drove the same route back in Idaho. 6 mile per hour tail wind. Which isn’t that extreme. Cruise control was set to 88 but the light tail wind took a lot of engine load off at that speed, so my cars hybrid computer fully charged the battery, then switched to engine only mode without battery charging. Instant and average mpg hovered between 51-53 mpg over about a 20 min stretch till the wind changed. 51 mpg at 85-90mph is insane with just a baby tail wind. Really motivating me to build that small boat tail now

If your concerned about the quality of the work, look to the custom car makers and their show-quality work.

Insofar as I know, at one time at the least, the top of the heap was Steve's Auto Restoration.

There was a waiting list years long for whole cars, but they might be able to turn something around sooner.
