Good thing it's only clay and it can be redone easily. I'd humbly suggest that an actual wing; not a Nascar-type "lip" is going to set off this body better, by breaking up the reverse-point that the ass-end of the car has. 99% of the pics of the Dale Spoiler (which everyone seems enamored with) actually looks very similar to this spoiler, just not as "thick" on the underside... I was hoping for a different direction.
GM makes a high wing spoiler if that's your thing. Have you seen it?

The Dove Tail spoiler is more vertical this one here is thick and horizontal, I think they look very different... similar in some areas, but different in most.

Lingenfelter, we love you, but you've got to change that hood. No one likes it, and that's going to make sales impossible. Make the slits match the front angle please. The spoiler is probably extremely functional, but it would be profitable to also introduce a dovetail or ducktail spoiler simply because that is the one that people want to buy the most. I would like to see the front lip smoother if possible. The reason I'm concerned is that the GM option has a similar edge, and this represents an opportunity to beat OEM. It looks good, but others have pointed out that this might hinder your sales. Lastly, I want to encourage you to keep up the good work! You're company is pretty much amazing in every category, and we're lucky to have you working on our Camaros.

I would like to see a real working cowl hood, the rear spoiler looks like the bow of a boat. Tone it down a bit

First I wanna say Thanks for the info and pics, gotta agree with Blur, the hood openings need to more closely match the factory facia slit. The chin spoiler and sides are awesome. Not feeling the rear spoiler, this is just my opinion now. Please dont get angry. How about a second generation style dovetail spoiler? That is a piece Id like to see someone make!

Overall effect is terrible

Take a perfectly good clean design and add too many apertures, angles and vents

I also dont understand the obsession with "functional" hood scoops - when superchargers seem to be doing pretty nicely without them.

Not everyone has a supercharger. Functional hoodscoops let the cold air in. Cold air = more power. Get the obsession?

Reserving judgement until anything near final starts being shown.

Maybe a few more angles on some of this stuff too, n'ect ce pas?

I'm surprised no one has noticed picture 3 is different than the rest... I like the hood on the other. I personally like the spoiler and think a tallish "nascar" style spoiler would be cool, but this one is different, more distinguished than the nascar style would be.

Long time watcher first time poster love the sight, the Camaro and all things Chevy performance related.

That's alright, let it fall off...

Looks like the stock spoiler, but rick Moranis got to it. "Honey, I blew up the spoiler and made it look like crap..."

What's the purpose of all this? I know Lingenfelter has a great reputation and all but honestly this looks like something cobbled together from totally unrelated parts out of a J.C. Whitney catalog. Is this supposed to be a race car? A special-effects movie car? What's the theme supposed to be? Or is this just a mule to try out bits and pieces that aren't intended to go together?

The hood looks cheesy; the gills are too wide and don't fit at all. The spoiler is way too much and looks like the brim of a banker's visor upside down.

These are such beautiful cars; why do this? Sorry but this just looks like rice American-style to me.

Wow, you really have no taste and an itch to spend a fortune on a name brand. If you want function over form, get a pair of New Balance over those Air Jordans. From Lingenfelter, you should be able to have your form AND function. This kit is ungodly disgusting and absolutely hideous. How these guys are in business I'll never know. Bet you the GM exterior design team gets paid a fraction of what Lingenfelter does and Lingenfelter cannot even product remotely equal results. Very disappointing, but not suprising.

I understand Lingenfelter takes things to another level with body design but I really hope this isn't a final design... There have been better looking hood and spoiler designs posted here by amateurs... jmo

Just throw some dirt and water in the trunk, cut a hole in the trunk lid, and grow some daisies, roses, and mums. Then that spoiler will have served it's purpose. WTH
Ok, maybe we're all laying in a little too hard. Surprise us with your finished artwork cause I'm not seeing it. Picaso? Rembrandt? Andy Worhol? I'm not seeing it yet.

Actually, after I went back and took a 2nd look, it's not horrible! Maybe after the grill is in, the rear ground skirt is on, and all the parts are painted, I think the car will still be a head turner. That last pick though shows the spoiler too far out the back, too round and too pointy in the middle. Again, I'm curious to see the results of your creation, but am already on order for the GM GFX. If you're gonna tear apart the new SS and change it up, you have to be able to accept some scrutinizing and ridiculing here.

Missed the mark on design completely!

Sorry guys but you really missed the mark on the design aspects of these parts. Start Over!
Where is the rear wing type spoiler mod?

Not feeling the spoiler, looks a bit too fat and the hood looks like a ricer. however the front chin spoiler is ok. But to each his own. Lets see how the finished product will look all painted up....

That spoiler is way off to outside. You need something like ZR1 with CB.
