Default Poll Yes/No. Please see pic

Thinking about eliminating pop ups completely and custom make new lenses for new custom bumper. Digital edited a pic to see how it would look. I知 not so sure that I like the look without them there. Maybe I値l make some type of carbon fiber plate to bolt in to the empty space when I remove them.

Please give your opinion with a Yes or No whether or not you think it looks good with them eliminated.

No. I don't even like it when bumpers are molded in. For some strange reason, it just looks right with the seams. Otherwise, it looks like some aftermarket kit car, and yes, I mean that in a bad way.

No. Also, likely illegal to do it today. Your headlights will be too low.

EDIT: I found the image of what the sightless C3 looks like to me.



EDIT 2: Even Mater thinks it's uncanny when the car's "eyes" are in the wrong place.

By itself it will look odd, but if you commit to the whole custom look you can make it work.

My Dad had a HOK candy red '69 vert with black top, chrome Hooker sidemounts, headlights behind the grill, no front bumper, no pop ups - smooth custom scratch built front end design by previous owner. Beautiful car. NY did not care about it but Canada and California authorities all over him, Eventually just had to sell it.

I would leave them. But if you did it the bumper would have to be molded in.

I'm gonna say "YES" to not doing it!!!

The "pop-up" headlights are what make the C3 "cool"...

My vote is NO. However, I am all about making my car into what I want it to be and believe you should make your Corvette all about you, whatever that means to you. But Don't do it...
