Exactly what i was thinking, something a little more suttle keeping the fogs in the factor location would be cool

I'm not really sure how that would turn out, if you get in another accident, you have to start all over again. And from the looks of your neighboring cars, everyone seems to be getting into front end trouble around your area.

Funny, now everyone is looking at me wierd in the office. Since I busted out laghing out of nowere.
The first time I tinted the windshield back when I had my first Bonneville, I used 20%.
The first night we went out crusing, in a dark I didnt see a curve coming & kept on going straight. The car ended up inside the bushes & all the girls screaming. I ripped the tint right there & we kept on going. This time I used 55%, so far so good.

About all the cars you see in the pic. They are all from family members. Since they know I fix my cars, they allways bring them to me. & I guess its been a bad month, for axidents arund here. The Bonneville I bougth like that, so it wasnt my fault.

The driving here is pretty bad, compared to the States... not counting Miami. But Ive seen worst, trie Mexico or Dominican Republic.


& 94SLEeper is right, that is why Im thinking twice about it.

I think the bumper plus the regular grille plus the ram air hood makes too many sets of holes with splits in the middle, I think thats why it looks so odd. I think the problem with adding aftermarket body panels and things like that is people do not try to do clean body kits that enhance the lines of the car, they make it something crazy so it will be noticeable (and that usually turns into being noticeable in a bad way like being laughed at). If you do something make a custom bumper do some drawings, play with the different lines and lights and see what you can come up with, sometimes the right one is much more simple than you thought in the first place.
