    Sorry about the dark pics, I can't use a flash in the garage because there's too much sanding dust floating around.


    Some new pics

    Not even close to done. The hood will be an aquired taste for me, I'm not even sure if I like it or not. The front bumper is sitting on the saw horses while we finish the body work. I just threw on the wheels for a few minutes to see how it would look, and to see how far of a drop I need (2.5" BTW) The car won't be done until April.

    Such a beautiful car for a "mullet" hood. What front bumper are you using? A '94-'95 LS bumper is my personal favorite over any kit. What offset are those Ray's? They have a nice fit.

    The wheels are a +42 offset, the rear wheels will tuck because I flared the rear fenders, but I have to have the front wheels milled to +44 to sit correctly. They're even with the fenders right now.

    Leave my hood alone :p, it will have a purpose when I build my custom intake manifold.

    No stickers + 230HP + no giant wing + $40,000 luxury car (back in 1991) + no body kit = not rice

    What are you driving again?

    I'm using the 91-93 front bumper for the time being, Next winter it'll get the 94-95 bumper.

    here's a pic [​IMG]

    BTW, I'm not having a shop do my work like most people, I'm doing this with me and my buddy doing this by ourselves.

    My hands on work > some $10 per hour schmuck that doesn't give a shit about my car.
