well DUH! why not use a flexible magnetic vinyl strip? this way you could easily adjust your location until you found a best spot.

either that or smear some oil on top of your car and then drive around at high speed and find the "bubble" and mount your strip inside of that "bubble"

or i might just make some of these out of plexi:

site can be found here:


Oh! Be sure to not draft any trucks that happen to have these mounted on the side!

Now, I ride the Eternal winds once more! And none shall ever be my master!

Hmm, I've never seen the 'Universal AirVortex' before. Without having tested it myself, I'd suspect that they work work pretty well to prevent delamination. My reason? The shape is taken from NACA ducts... which work great to push and pull air from a flat surface without adding drag.

I'd bet that they work well in a highly turbulent area of a vehicle.
