Sorry for the late updates but progress has been slow lately.  The front nose piece was in rough shape and full of old mud plus it needed a few holes welded up.  Hopefully I will have to time to start knocking out parts quickly.

More to come soon…

This past weekend we sat down and discussed a bunch of specific elements I wanted my car to have.  My friend Kelan, who is painting the car, is pretty good with photoshop and came up with a few quick mockups to help give us ideas. Some of the criteria we ended up with after deliberation:

  1. Grey/Black top combo
  2. Custom Stripe & 383 emblem (really liked the red pin stripes)
  3. SS hood
  4. Front bumper delete
  5. Shaved door locks & antenna (going to leave door handles though)
  6. Blacked-out grill area
  7. Body colored side markers
  8. Chrome rocker panel and wheel well trim delete
  9. 18″ Coy C-57/Boyd Magneato wheels
  10. 2″ drop
  11. Front & rear spoilers

Here’s two mockups, the first is my favorite as it has most of the criteria we ended up with.
