[DML] Re: Early production prototype rear fascia



Interesting work. Nice wheels by the way. Love em.
It is interesting that you note the temperature change in the motor 
compartment. The prototype you designed looks quite a bit larger and 
thicker than the one I was pointing too; which makes me wonder if 
heat really was a defining issue.
Thanks for adding your info.
