      Went in to the body shop yesterday and saw some more progress.

      Hood with the extension. I wanted the fenders done as well to mach the hood.
      Let me know what yall think of the hood or if I should address anything.





      I was thinking if maybe the fender part could be more roundish, not sure if it will look weird or good though.

      Also the trunk is shaved.

      Yea the headlights look to "pointy" on the fender side the look is odd, hard to explain. See if they can round it out a bit and make it look more "OEM"

      You guys are lucky to have such good workmanship over there, over here in South Africa we will never be able to pull it off, and those who can will **** you over with the price.

      Car will look tops when done.

      Just how much do you think he's paying for all this?

      As far as I know, it's going to run him, at a proper shop, about $1k/ corner for quarters, probably another $1k for shaving bumper, another $1k for boser ... Maybe they did the trunk for free

      This is even before paint, which may run up to $2-4k

      So he's $10k in fr all this, and I'm bing somewhat conservative.

      But again, if you want to go all out, this is how it should be done.

      But everything looks legit, and this definitely is the right way to go

      Thanx man. This is really taking a long time though. I started getting very inpatient. I just cant wait for my car to be all done.
      Im just hoping it will be ready for waterfest at-least. I was looking forward to making it to this show with my car at-least for this year. I missed all other meets and shows this year.

      Same here, I wasn't actually planning to do to my car what I ended up doing. Come winter, a few more things. I'm hoping for some long drives starting next spring!
