Looks pretty to good to me, clean, nothing over-the-top. Nice job.

Appears everything cosmetic that can be done has been done, maybe time to focus resources under hood?
Give this beautiful bad boy a bite matching the bark.

Looks like a wonderful, unique & fun to drive cruiser as-is though.

On this site, if you mod, you're going to get it from some bozo. Ask me how I know

I like what you have done.

I think those emblems on the seats are a bit over the top but other than that, I like it!

I like it very well done.

This car has been embraced by the stance community and actually taken home trophies at shows (I know, quite a shock to me also), since we last spoke, so I figured I'd stop by with an update.

Have added tons of parts including:
VIS Carbon Fiber Hood, Zero6 Front Lip, ZR1 Carbon Fiber Side Skirts, Carbon Fiber OEM Style Rear Diffuser, Carbon Fiber ZR1 Extended Rear Spoiler, Custom Interior & Seats, Carbon Fiber Emblems, Carbon Fiber Door Handles.

My flame-suit is on, I'm ready. Have at it!

P.S: Likely still not returning to these forums full time, if you want to see more of this car follow me at @ddizach on Instagram

The first thread he posted showed close ups of the rear quarter flares. They are bolted on instead of full replacement and some members didn't like the way they flowed into the factory quarters.

I think the car looks great.

Your car looks fantastic. Hard to imagine you getting flamed for it. Lots of internet tough guys on this forum.

I really don't get why people get upset over things like this. If I woke up one day and someone had done this to MY car, i'd be upset since it affects just me. If modding your car the way you have makes you happy (I personally think it looks cool), then I'm happy for ya! We all basically start out buying the same car (minus the difference of color, interior level and model differences), but what we do to it afterwards (or don't do to it) is what truly makes it ours. Keep up the work brotha!

That's the only thing I see that bugs me but that's a preference thing. I think it looks dope.

Also looks like Long Beach in the background

I'm glad the wheels are not black, and it's not scraper low.

I love wide body C6! This one is not an exception. Good stuff. I just did a widebody on mine as well.

The overall wide-body look is great, I think itís that the fender flares are tacked on on top of the factory fenders which gives the appearance of being cheap (which Iím sure theyíre not) when you couldíve just replaced them with OEM wide fenders or SuperVettes.
