Saleen Style Rear Fascia on Gen 5 Camaro?

I always thought the 2008(?) Mustang Saleens had an awesome rear fascia.



I photoshopped that fascia onto a Gen 5 Camaro.



Any thoughts? (CRAYOLA STYLE EDIT FOLLOWS: Any thoughts on the look that the Saleen fascia might bring to the Camaro?)

Interesting, but what you show would require a complete body kit. Why don't you come up with something limited to the rear fascia?

Thanks for the intelligent input. Apparently, some people think this is a high end art show for beatniks or something.

Based on the Saleen, it looks like it could be just a rear piece. Or are you just stating that in order to have it blend evenly across the bottom of the whole vehicle you would need a whole body kit to bring it all together?

Are you referring to just the bottom half with the cut outs and location of the exhaust?

Or are you also including the part that surrounds the taillights as well?

The stuff surrounding the outside of the taillights would require extensive body work. But everything else is potentially doable just through the fascia design by itself...

With all do respect, we have Camaros not Mustangs......I don't want anything on my Camaro that looks like a Mustang.

Taillights as well.

I suspected that the Saleen Package must have been reasonably easy to add on to existing factory bodys. While the actual rear lower fascia of the Camaro might have to be removed, it might be able to easily take that spot and come up and around.

Saleen Camaro 620. The rear looks the same as a stocker.

Its really only the rear fascia depth that the Saleen package brought to the Mustang I'm trying to reflect. Not really a Mustang look. I just used the Saleen rear end to move over for the purposes of an easy visual.

So you want the rear fascia to protrude a little further aft?

That Saleen Camaro was at the Camaro Car show in Orange last Sunday. Nothing special. It has a one off hood. Everything else was SS on it.

Exactly. It would be for the sole purpose of flattening the side look of the rear end. Never was fond of the curved rear.

Like I said before, your biggest issue is going to be the body work required for the rear-quarter panels to extend them past the taillights.

You could conceivably mold the fascia to have a protrusion that runs up that high, but then what? It would also have to run over top of the lights as well back to the trunk lid, which would mean you'd need a whole new trunk lid to keep that new body line flowing.

I mean, it's totally doable, but the expense as well as the time it would take to do it right would put the end product way outside of your usual target audience's checkbook.

Not to mention if it was done poorly, the end product would have the potential for looking absolutely horrible considering the number of bodylines you're touching...

Per the difficulty level, I'm on board with you. But, what about the look? At a glance if you saw this vehicle, with that mod, would it look good?

Disagreeing politely is fairly easy. I suggest folks think before the post or it's just time wasted as your posts will easily go poof.

Don't like the PS? Fine. Explain how you think it could be better (use Scooter for a perfect example).

Thanks.
