Hahaha I appreciate that.

When it comes to work like this there is some planning involved .....but I just take chances and go for it. I dont always know what's gonna happen and most of the time u discover things as u go and adjust and modify. ...its only metal....

I was having an awful hard time liking it before...the lines just didnt seem to work well together. But that looks a whole lot better smoothed out. Nice work.

Thanks. It's hard to see in the pics but the hood feature lines point right at the inner upper corners of the headlights and that shape change on the front of the hood .....even those lines flow with the Plainview of the wide body fenders quite well. I was pretty happy with how this was turning out. And it is a big part of my Z28 theme

Just finished up with the rear coil over conversion for the Beretta with 4th GEN camaro coilovers). Thanks to Viking suspension and UMI we will be sitting nice and low .....with the adjustment to go even a lil lower. And have the ability to keep up with compemression and rebound adjustments. Also upgraded to this 22mm UMI rear swaybar with new endlinks.

Sweet. I also bought Viking coilivers from UMI for my Camaro. They are based in PA and sponsor the autocross at Carlisle.

What's the plan with the bumpers?

Nice ...there's a lot of adjustment in the dampening of the shocks. Can't wait to test em out

The bumpers and all other custom body panels are getting cast so I can make replacement parts in the event of wreck, or I may attempt to make carbon fiber parts. And change the look of the car. Basically Aeroform no longer produces this the kit and my wide body fenders the into them.....so I want the ability to make more because I do plan on racing this car.

Smart move. I'm interested in molding some stuff in fiberglass too. Be curious to see how yours turns out.

There's also some DIY plastic molding resin available now. Thinking about doing some single color Camaro tails.

Woooo updates!

You need to let me know how you like the Viking setup.

They have a set for the C6 - as my current coilovers are old as hell and are no longer made.

All the reviews I saw on NastyZ were overwhelmingly positive. Viking was founded by some QA1 employees when they got sick of QA1 going downhill.
