    always wondered how a front end with a RS lower valance and a standard upper valance would look. run the turn signals behind the grill for a smooth look? Then of course a functional 70 chevelle cowl induction bulge grafted to the camaro hood. jim

    Interesting... I think you would have to run those newer headlights with halo turn signals to get enough separation to be legal (and safe).

    I remember member 468rat did one of those hoods, I liked it so much, I copied it but sold it since I had a 6-71 sticking out of my hood. Saw a camaro for sale a year later with the hood on it, sure enough it was my old one but the guy actually.finished the bodywork on the welds.

    I really like this look. Funny. I posted a thread about this very look today. How do you think they achieved this? Standard car with the RS lights just molded in? The grill is definitely a standard non RS grill (poly). That leads me to believe it is a standard upper and lower valencer (to make the grill line up)...just with RS light molded it and maybe the parking lights deleted? Or I wonder if the lower valence is a true RS lower valence and the sheet metal just lines up perfectly with the standard upper valence and then they added RS lights. Or maybe it's just a whole RS car with a modified grill. I can't figure it out! Haha. Either way, I really like it.
