    Great job on all the mods!

    Especially like the front end treatment. That split grille is sweet sitting under those quad headlights. Good luck with the rest of the re-do. Looks like you're getting close to tying it all up.

    Awesome! Nice to see some original ideas being used instead of the same ol same ol.

    I like how you guys extended the grille opening down more, i HATE it when somebody uses a floating bar type grille in a grille opening that is just too damn big for the grille.

    WOW, I was looking at the old front,(headlights) and thought it looked a bit odd the way the lights pointed down, it didn't flow(my $,02) and now with the new lights,the peaked hood over and pointed...man you nailed it, it looks killer,good choice on the grille treatment too. it really flows (again my $.02)
