I Agree. no on the orange bottom. I'd say do a twotone orange top if you're going to do the lower part orange to.

Cool. So you guys like em' huh?

I had already pretty much summed up what you guys are saying in my own mind.

Scott gave me the idea yesterday because I have to replace on of my rocker panels anyway (Don't ask ) so he just made the mention wondering if it might look ok. Couple photoshops later I'd agree with you guys now.

Chris, that one looks ok but would have to stay on the rocker panel I think. Essentialy getting smaller as it went forward.

But still not felling it.

Oh well. Cut-outs and wheels and I'll be done modding.

Well it wasn't me, it was Bonnie.

When we went down for Mardi Gras I drank a bit and she didn't so she drove home. Well, I had backed in to a parking spot right next to a curb on the passenger side. Bonnie immediately turned right and crushed the rocker panel on the curb. :(

well... on the bright side, it's probably cheaper than if she did it in the vette

It's a little worse than it looks but it is just the panel. I'm going to J-Ville next weekend as Chris has hooked me up with his paint guy to have a new panel painted and paint the front fascia and my stripes on the hood.

She did get stuck on the curb. She asked me "What do I do"?

She was freaking out. She was stuck on the curb. Had to gas on it to get off.

At the end of the day, it's just a car. But I was pretty bummed.

The day I wake up perfect is the day I'll expect someone else to be.

Yup. I"m pretty jazzed. The front fascia is huge for me too. REALLY sucks to have such crappy roadways here as far as rock chips. I'm goint to definitely do the clear bra this time.

BTW...............

When I get my spears painted on I want it to say something. Like it does now but obviously it being permanent I need it to not say L99 6.2 like it does now.

It's not an L99 anymore anyway.

So I came up with:

SC 376

Any other ideas?

Here is how it has been.

I liked my "SUPERCHARGED" look. I can even hook you up with the lettering. (Big Worm Graphics did them).

That's my second choice for sure. I like that a lot and might do it. It's just something about numbers mixed with letters that makes it sound really cool.

Instead of the dump out being diverted it becomes the exhaust being diverted. Makes it even more flowing when wot with them open.

But still a type of cut-outs.
