I posted some pictures here- http://robertwb70.blogspot.com/

I'm really curious to see what all the new sheet metal gets me. The car is a 1991 Geo metro 1.0 auto with a few engine mods and has been getting a consistent 42 MPG for the last few months.

Added some updates- Front tire deflectors, rear appearance panels and the upper part of rear fender skirts.

I've posted a couple of pics of an interesting method (to me) to figure out how to cut the sheet metal I'm adding to my car to match up with the complex curves with the minimum hassle.
I'm still working on the rear fender skirts and it's been slow going mostly due to me trying to get a little over ambitious with the design. School starts back Monday so I'm going to simplify some of the design to hopefully get it done before next week.

Got the rear wheel skirts mostly finished today and posted some pictures, they still need a few adjustments but you can see what I have now.

Thanks for sharing your blog, these aero mods are all things I want to do some day. I don't have much experience with fabrication, so this all helps a lot.
