New Record 35.99mpg HWY Golden Egg (I'll take that round up, thanks)

The Kamm back is in the black. Coast downs are amazing and vacuum is showing over 17 inches at 80Kph. used to be 16.

It's not even finished yet. I have to add the bottom section below the tail lights and under the bumper.

Also record "What is that thing for?" inquiries and record gawking cars full of teenagers pointing and laughing. Mostly all supportive folks though.

Another first: I know what it's like to have people photograph you while driving. Sheesh, what a commotion.

The numbers are worth it.

Thanks to all who have helped and supported! The modding shall continue...
