Modifications
Rear wheel fender skirts(plastic), Better than first cardboard. Been on since 9/06.
Front fender skirts in progress, have been testing one side since November, 2006. Finished now. http://www.gassavers.org/showthread.php?t=2173 Both finished now. updated 3/15/07

Grille block (plastic), had cardboard at first, some better now.
Front 5" air dam below bumper (flexible). Another 3" added recently.
Tire air deflectors, front and rear. 55-60# tire pressures.
Stainless spun wheel covers, found new for $18 set.
Have had Scangauge II since October, 2006. Very important tool.
Had ignition kill switch in the past. Do not need with injector shut-off installed November, 2006 Completed front underpan section 2/07. Some engine compartment insulation.
Planned Modifications
Complete underpan. Have temporarily changed my mind on this. Did a partial in front.
Side body skirts. May substitute underbody air guidance. Have gotten air pressure test gauges to help.
Refine tire air deflectors, working on those now 2/07. Done.
Would like to try skinnier tires. Present 185/65/14 are pretty wide. Soon.
Keep working on fuel trim modification. Altitude here near 10,000 feet.
Will install my engine block heater soon, not a pleasant task in winter. Done
Auxiliary vacuum tank for power brakes. Putting it off again.

Recontour my driveway to circle through and downhill. Tired of losing 3-4 MPG turning around. Done.
