I haven't pulled the plastic trim around the mechanism to see how difficult to covert to pull, but I could probably rig something to push the button a pvc sleeve with a wooden dowel would suffice, maybe even make a good support for bonneville spoiler 2.0

After reinstalling the air dam the car does seems to get up to speed more briskly under minimal throttle application. I also observed 1 psi at 60 mph and 3 psi at 70mph where it used to be 3-4 psi at 60 and 5-7 psi at 70mph.

The bulk of my improved decklid extension is back on. I was able to extend it by more than 4 inches which may put it where it needs to be with the partial kamm.I haven't driven it yet, and I think I'm going to fence it as well but stay tuned for more updates.

I scored a 4x6 sheet of coroplast and some random light aluminum signage. I'm planning to finish my flat spoiler with some fences, rear wheel skirts and put the conveyor belt side skirts back on.

I initially wanted to do a double layer side skirt like basjoos on aerocivic, then I thought with that air dam so low it wouldn't be effective until I found bzp's thread on rear wheel skirts.

Now I think I want to back my side skirts with house gutter to a. stiffen the conveyor belt and b. form an inner skirt and build that edge along the inside of the wheel to the inside edge of a diffuser.

Oh and a grille block! I'm thinking a good 3/4 to 7/8 of the current grill can be covered. I'll make this out of coroplast so I can trim if necessary.
