It goes one inch in front of the tire. I made sure it didn't hit the tires when they were turned. I don't plan to carry it back further.

I just use metal. It doesn't catch on fire. I have the belly right next to my muffler with no problems at all.

I may do a version 4 of the belly pan later on when I get some time. I'm on version 3. Version 1 covered the entire rear end but was held on with duct tape and kept falling off. Version 2 is what you see. Version 3 is what you see and I made some small changes to the front of it where you can't see it.

That looks very clean. We could all benefit from a step by step guide if you're willing to write it.

I'm kind of fond of metal myself. It's easier to make the mods look like they came on the car straight from the factory.

Do you have any future plans for rear wheel skirts and other aero mods?

Not on this car. I'm done with all aero mods on this car.

I like honda, echo is too expensive. I first need to sell my car and then save some money and then buy a car.

Yeah, I know. The Civics get great mileage even without FE geek techniques. Once Echos are down to $5k used then I'll look at getting one...

...wait...what am I saying? I'm supposed to convince you to join the Swift-clone crowd!
