      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.
