Re: Question for the Aero-knowledgeable.
so would it then be better to slope at 12 degrees from the top of the tailgate to wherever that meets, or to the top of the cab?
also, thinking about streamlined vehicles- they don't make all of their change at once. could a more aggressive downward pitch be more beneficial if I eased into it? say, starting at 10 degrees, and working towards 30 by the end of the bed....
this is full custom, so it's only a matter of whether or not I can build it...
however, I'm making it so that I can also convert it into a 4 ft tall sidewall in a few moments notice... going to be hauling lots of junk this summer helping my parents clean up a fixer property.
also, thinking about streamlining in multiple dimensions... couldn't the bed sides act as fins in a way where they would not greatly harm the aero? (this, assuming I could slope it in a way to have the tailgate down)
