A few cosmetic changes..

Got sick of the fugly fading bird on the back so i put a new one on and replaced the "firebird" with new emblems, then added some rear fillins, also added side "firebird" overlays and made the bird on the front black. Think it was too much or do yall like it?

I dunno man... still looks like a GM to me? :dunno:

Nah, who am I kidding? It looks great man. It's definitely not too much. The bird was barely noticeable when it was red and there's no reason not to show it off tastefully.

Re: A few cosmetic changes..

ugh whats with the honeycombs man, anyway to rid those? they kill it for me, aside from that, the perfect fbody would be a firehawk front with the 02 camaro rear with the firebird rear quarters custom molded on(they add to that muscular look), but would retain the better camaro tails.

Bleh. There's something wrong with you. I like the honeycombs...

On topic: It looks good. I've got some subtle cosmetic changes on the way for my car...I'll try to show them off sometime here in the next week or two...

Re: A few cosmetic changes..

I too like the honeycombs.

But... I was also always a fan of the "cheesegraters" on the fox GTs, so no one should try respect my opinion when it comes to tail lights. There's something clearly wrong with my thought process.

you dont know how many compliments i have gotten on the honeycombs.. i acctually love em, looks too cheap and tacky without em.. and i agree about the firehawk front, i will eventually get that hood, or something maybe a little more agressive but along the same lines, thanks for all the kind words guys i do realize this is a mustang site and i dont meen to whore it up with my car lol at least its not a ranger right? :dunno:

Re: A few cosmetic changes..

my only real issue with the fbodies is the exhaust... ive yet to see a setup that looks good... looks odd just stick out from under the bumper on the camaro for sure. It also looks odd on the firebird, little tip in the big hole. Other than that I like it.

Re: A few cosmetic changes..

Where'd you buy your bird overlay? And how hard was the install. I've tossed around that idea, but I can't decide if I really want to do it.

Re: A few cosmetic changes..

http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/vinyl/vinyl.htm that is a good guy to get em from and it was super easy install, they say to use soapy water to put it on but after trying to do my fillins like that i lost patience and just lined it up nice and stuck it on dry, i wouldnt press hard but just played around itl i got it all lined up perfect and air bubbles out and it looked great, i believe there is install directions on his site. id go with aluminum look for ur car..

here is another site but that is not where i got em, prices look slightly cheaper but i cannot vouch for this site http://www.fourthcircledesigns.com
