Aerodynamics

Just wondering what people have done to improve the aerodynamics of their vehicles; belly pans, body kits, fiberglassing (Please elaberate). And whether or not these changes have made a noticible difference to range/performance.

It is quite easy to mesure , you must run at 55mph for about 1 minute on a wide straight and leveled road and note voltage and amps every 15 seconds.you must also make shure there is no trafic close to you in any direction and make shure that tire pressure is maintained.with 4 mesures you can make an average that should be a good indication of the influence of the aerodynamic modifications. also when making your average convert your mesurements in watts ( volts * amps =watts).when your done can you post your results i'm looking forward to see them.
