Closing the air flow behind the car is really important & something he may not be aware of.

Could it be a case of "short shop"? I have seen some cars that did not have a good rear end treatment because it would be to long for the shop. Lots of nice aluminum work on this car, to bad he stopped at the most important part.

Short shops can be a problem. My liner is 40ft long but the shop is only 30 so 9ft of tail stands on end beside the mill & the 4ft nose hangs in the roof up front by the door plus I live in the top of the other end. Just like a liner, 10lb of $hit in a 5lb bag.

I can certainly relate to that, Sid. An extra three foot lengthening the rear of my lakester has to be built and stored separately from the car. Just not enough room in the garage. Tried running without this section in 2017 and quickly found that was a mistake.
