aero. I hate that stock bumper.

Infact Im going to delay paint a bit, and remove the rear bumper and roll some sheet metal to smooth it out.


Also I came up with the crazy idea of putting the gas filler behind the tail light. I want to make the car look more streamline

Cool project!

I'm not real crazy about the chevy style hoodscoop. I think it would look wicked with a Boss 429 style scoop.

I like the blue and black paint combo. Or maybe try black with blue racing stripes. What ever paint scheme you go with it's going to look cool.

Keep up the good work.

I would paint it black but black shows to many small dents

Then my vote would be Bahama blue with black racing stripes.
