Yep, I'm petty familiar with basic fluid dynamic principles... raw materials are en route for the end plates and I have a giant sheet of alumalite in my garage for the front splitter. Just want some seat time before the rains get too wild, as fun as wet HPDEs are.

Just need some free time and to clean my garage lol
