I like it but you need some rectangular tips to fill it out.

I've been think'n about doing the same thing but cutting it all the way across. basically shave 3-4" off the bottom with a slight up angle on the outside edges... You version does look damn good though.

No, the flat one like on a 90-91 Talon. They were the biggest of the 1G DSM wings. It seems surprising until you compare the car's profile with and without a wing. Aero means a lot more the faster you go but I was only ever trapping in the 105mph range so the wing made a difference even at that point.
