Something along those lines. Car is like golf ball because other motorists slamming their doors on it, so I thought that matt black with dark matt gray might hush them off a bit? Well at least spraying patches is simple and cheap as that colour is cheapest one and at spring they have huge sales of that stuff...

Red parts I think that I transform to matt grey, something like graphite was what I bought, don't know how it will look, hopefully ugly.

They say it is a Kammback, I say it is close to 20% less drag, effect to wind noise is enormous, there is practically no wind noise in car after putting that on.

I don't know about antilouvre, it does make nice shade and from outside it is quite hard to see inside to trunk, so it does work as louvre, but of course some thinks such ugly things are put there for a looks, I don't do anything for the looks, for example paint scheme is going to be such that it kind of blends to road, especially at dark, car is so ugly that I need to 'hide' it :lol:

VND could also put something on top of the boot lid and at edge of boot lid too, same way those cool concept cars posted earlier had, otherwise you have no way to reach my MPG levels, I bought brake grease too, so soon I can see how well that frenchie really does after I lubricate my brakes :D

Anothers years trouble free motoring.

She only needed a brake pipe, disks and pads.

Managed to get some unboxed Green Stuff pads from Ebay for 98p (plus post and packing) so its a bona fide Ralleh car now. :lol:
