Due to the design and construction of my vehicle, the fuel tank is mounted behind the IRS and just in front of this rear panel.  I also wanted a larger and more usable boot area, because of this the rear body panel ended up larger and flatter than other Locost cars.  The spare wheel is mounted on the back and this tends to break up the large expanse of metal but I also added some vents and alloy trims to further enhance the appearance from the back.  This photo shows the improvement that the vent makes to the presentation of the rear.
