David, you mentioned earlier that you intend making a windshield using hang=
ing baskets, so I assume you mean spherical. Is that the best shape, or wou=
ld a flattened sphere be better? Wouldn't a sphere be more likely to create=
 turbulence on the downwind side because of the large cross section present=
ed to the wind? Or a football shape (not soccer, I mean egg shaped), pointe=
d into the wind, assuming the wind direction is constant?
