Arrow Missing gills - making my own

I have not seen any aftermarket front fascias or home-made mods attempting the gills that went missing from the concept to production, found under the fogs.





Thanks to the magic of vinyl/decals, I should have pix of my attempt tomorrow

TOMORROW ARRIVED

in person it looks ok. I wish i used/had flat black instead bc the result could also be interpreted as 4 rouge strips of electrical tape lol

if some company makes the inserts for a reasonable price, I'd cut and do it

in theory:


result (dark out/cell cam):


up close:

I would say the reason you didn't see them on the production V8's are because the front fascia lip is very different from the concept. It protrudes out more profoundly all the way to the edges and thicker. You wouldn't be able to see any gills under the lip. V6 possibly could do it.

ok pix are posted in original comment

seems that u'd either have to have a light color camaro to pull this off or just actually cut slots :/

The only plus I can come up with this is when your changing your oil and have it up in the air, you can see it. Otherwise it's pointless and you'd have to say "hey, bend over and look at these cool looking stickers I put under my car...cool huh?" lol
