    Here's a few extra pics. They've cut the ends off the bumper to tuck them in some more and have added some fiberglass to the bottom bumper and mud to smooth out. You can see how they also cut the fender for the headlight buckets, added the lip and some brackets for the bucket to mount too.

    Looks like they modified the upper valance and flipped it upside down, I think it looks pretty good and personally think more people would like 74-77 more if GM did that from the factory as it looks more like a 70-73 grill.

    That's correct - but I can't take credit for it. I saw it on the Painkiller Camaro thats on here.

    It's basically the upper valance flipped upside down and then the ends from the original lower valance cut off and then fibered together.

    This really looks good and when finished it may even look better than a 70-73. Very well done!

    Interesting. I like the headlight mod. Looking forward seeing it all in paint.

    Any of you guys have any recommendations for 4 inch fog lights for the lower valance?
