Found the hand written receipt for the white car. $200 bucks.

Weather is getting better! Let's get back on this thing. Kinda hoping we lose Bryan. All of us should feel the same way on this one. Kick ass Bry!

Ok, pics of the corrugated plastic.It's 39 1/2" wide and at least 20' long. Should be enough to cover the bottom of the car at least. A few tech screws and fender washers and we can have a smoothe bottom to the car.

It's all wet in the barn! Water flowed all the way across the floor this time! Here's a pic of our little fall today,  It was a torrent towards the end of the last storm. Probably only 10% of what was coming down before. Would have pics of the stronger flow if I knew how to use this camera.

Had no camera, but I made a U-turn and went the other way! Kinda like knowing a drunk driver is in front of you.

I just looked through this entire thread and I'm so depressed that I haven't been able to help you more Bill :down:

I'm leaving tonight for San Jose (I'm taking tomorrow off to spend more time with the wife) and I'll be back very late Sunday night. I will try to come up a few times next week!! :yesnod:

Take some time and lay under your 2. look for places that might be drag producing protrusions. Can they be improved by removing them or putting in a sheet of plastic, foam and glass cloth, etc. Look for places we can route air from beneath the car.
I.ve been considering the area just behind the front tires. Cut the fenders to allow the air to flow to the side of the car, and extend the side skirts foward to force the air upwards. Things like that. We can bump heads on it next time we get together.

How about we put in an inverted spoiler under the car? Or whatever it's called, hang on a second...


EDIT: Okay I can't find what I'm thinking about. :smack: When it comes to my mind I'll post it up

How hard and expensive would something like this be? We could just thin sheetmetal?

I have that corrugated plastic sheet. Pay close attention to the control arm anchor points on our cars. Would have to do some contouring.
