Grey/Black Firebird project

Hey everyone!

Decided to show what I've done to my bird lately, see what you guys think.

Pretty much got rid of all the engine, trans, suspension, drivetrain,brakes.
Threw in everything new in and did a full restyle/repaint.

No electrics and interior so far, but will be in process soon.

Thanks!

The central trunk piece fits right in (apart from the holes that need to be drilled, obviously). But the corner pieces had to be done almost from scratch.

WOW, looks great! What can you tell me about the ground effects on the quarter panel? It looks like its from a 2nd gen but I can't imagine one fitting that well on a 3rd gen.

They actually sell them.

Over here dealers actually put them on new premium cars that lack this thing from the factory like lexus, etc.

My friend even got a 2017 Camaro with this installed by the dealer. Although, unlike our cars, doors on 6gens close so easily, the things hardly ever get used.

But I have to say they were a real pita to install.
