Default Come inside & look at some ideas for my next projedct!!!

Playing around with some ideas. I like most of them but cant do them all.
Bodywork related, I will do the rear spoiler (wich most of you have seen), the front lower spoiler(can you tell by the picture?), & the shaker hood scoop from a 70'* TA (this one is not final).
Anyways have some fun looking at my brain:

The Trans Am tribute:

The convertible, so easy to do that Im tented. But then I think that it can only be used on sunny days:

I really like the Judge one, might have to copy that idea someday.

Why you want to stick with the 20 spokes? You already have them?

Im digging the TA tribute with the gold 20 spokes


the tiger shark plane is also cool but I would do silver 20 spokes.

For this project Im looking for extreme & low budget. Because I got the car & got it running for less than $200.
I know a place here where I can get the car wraped in vinil for about $1,000. & I can do the graphics. (cheaper than getting it painted).
The 20 spokes are coming out of my 2001. & all I would have to do to them is to paint them.

Just as an FYI on the convertible, once you cut the roof off, you lose the strength of the unibody and the car will want to fold. You'd have to do some MAJOR bracing to get it to even feel solid when driving it. It'* not as simple as just cutting the roof off.

As for the other ideas, I like the judge one a lot. I also like the flare accents on the trans am tribute.

All of them are VERY cool, I am most interested in the Trans Am and the scales one, would be interested in doing my own car, if thats cheaper than painting over my shitty factory paintjob. The undercoat sucks!
