Default Tank Covers

Has anyone put a tank cover on a DD?
I'm building one now that starts at the engine and covers the tank and tuned pipe. The tank is a custom job that is wedge shape and sit down inside the tank bay. Oh by the way the DD has been clip 2" and thinned 20% form stock. I'm looking for a true 225 MPH. If this does not get the MPH then I'm thinking of really kit bashing and laying the engine on it's side and putting the pipe inside the "wing". Are there any more good speed tips out there?

Now that would be different to put the pipe inside the wing. I would be curious to see how you did this around the fiber rod on the LE of wing.

I got everything fully enclosed on my DD except for the engine. I used a Sullivan flex tank to take the shape of the DD. It worked out nicely. But I did loose some capacity on the tank.
