I am not a fan of the 6 outlets on the side 9too much) but the center area is beautiful! Also, with that hood your going to have to mod the rest of the body (looks out of place with the rest of the car). may after additional body mods it would look together! It is a pretty piece though.

Not to shabby, but like to see it what it would look like without the vents on the side.

:agree:

While I think that it looks fantastic, it wouldn't be for me, but without the side vents, it might be!

Nice work... what are you using to "sculpt" all theses curves? I used to do this type work with fiberglass when Vettes were fiberglass, but have no idea what might work/last on these new plastic parts?

Not bad. Not entirely my taste but you did a pretty good job on it. Like someone else said, it looks out of place on an otherwise plain jane, stock car. Ill be interested in seeing what you do to mod up the rest. Not to get off topic, but it looks like you could really use some 1 inch spacers on those rear wheels too. Unless you like the sunken in look.

But again, nice job. Definitely an improvement over your last one.
