    This turned out great. I don't remember seeing those rear quarter spears removed before. Very cool.

    I like it and have one question.

    Are you going to round the hood corners? I think it might finish off the look of that front end.

  15. Nice work! It definitley needs the hood corners rounded those sharp corners up front really stand out with all the other curves you have going on.

    One question. Did you bag upfront?

    Just be aware, those arms are rigid, and will not flex, as in the original design specification, as the GM engineers had intended. All of the articulation in the suspension system is forced into the bushings. Yeah, they "work", just not as the engineers intended.
