Changed my V6 front to a V8 front with new stripes!!

I finally got around to buying a V8 front bumper cover and putting it on my V6 car. Since my car was intended to be a daily driver I knew a V8 was out and I would buy a V6. I really like the look of the V8 nose (who doesn't) and I bought a yellow nose off a wrecked Camaro and painted it black (myself) and installed new stripes that clearly indicate the car is not a V8. So, I have the economy of a V6 and the look of a V8, which is what I really wanted from the start. I'm sure some will flame me for this, but I like it. Rob

nice, i was originally going say i wouldnt be racing as someone will go around saying they beat an new v8 but i like the v6 decals. Nice job!

also as far as i can tell the v8's front nose the only diffrence is that they have the slot at the top in the center and then likes lines on the edge's of the nose, hard to explain.

Hey that looks good!

Also besides the mail slot and groove lines in the front lower corners in the bumpers, the lower grille is different too
