  3. The wheel opening changes the lengthens the look of the front end dramatically, nice change.

  8. These look good with the right treatment, are you gonna keep the "silver streak" over the hood & trunk that's one think I like about the Pontiacs vs Chev/Olds. Can't wait to see more.

    Thanx for all the comments.

    Yes I'll keep the "silver streak" on the hood, but not on the trunk. The rear end will be redone so I'll post pick when I have some progress to show.
     
  10. Really really bitchin. Everything seems to flow and the fender lips are a really nice touch.

    Those are some awesome touches! I was eyeing a poncho for sale locally and had wondered what a chevy grille would look like in it :)

    When you replaced the "ugly" front wheel arches did you happen to keep them? I'd love to have a set. Please PM me if you have'em.
