Can Anyone Make This Bumper For Me?

Money is not an extremely large issue but is considered. Neither is time since my car isnt here. Just wondering if anyone would be interested in making it for me.

not to mention, John Saleen HATES Chevy, he has made that very clear many times in different statments, SO, I wouldn't hold my breath for him to make anything for the camaro, he is a DIED IN THE WOOL FORD FANATIC.

He may hate Chevrolet but is still making a Camaro. Look on the SMS website and its listed there. 620 Camaro is what they are calling it. Not actually shown, but says coming soon. Hes also doing a Chally.

I wonder what those blank empty spaces will look like in real life on the car... pretty sure you'll see some engine/frame work behind that and not empty black voids. Maybe mesh would help here. Still looks weird.

Meant to say this yesterday when I saw this...

IF someone makes this from facia, you are most likely going to have to remove that front bumper thereby really increasing the possibility of major front end damage should you ever hit something....and I mean at slow speeds. There would need to be a lot of prefab work done and losing that front bumper might not be that great of an idea.

That is a great point. They may have to hold the bumper and make the openings a little less exaggerated, which may look better anyway!

yes we discussed ordering a new facia to be modified. of course that is a large expense itself. but if i dont like it or it didnt hold up i would already have a painted stock facia sittin at the house. idk i guess we will just have to see how it comes out

Cool idea,

Not feelin the Saleen label... if it's not a saleen.... why? Like slappin a Gucci tag on somethin you stitched up at home. Doesn't make it Gucci... and gives credit to the wrong people. (Why not have a label giving credit to you or whoever is fabricating this for you or the Company that made the car or the car itself....)

I personally love the color, and I love the sides of the car with those sexy flares, even like the spoiler... As for the front... The lowest portion of the bumper looks a little lambo... But I actually think it's workin pretty cool.

Not so sure about the section that the fog lights are rigged up on... The two big voids sandwiching the fog lights in the mid... Somethin feels off there (for me) If you stare at it long enough it is somewhat reminiscent of the new mazda front fascia's.... that big ol grin. Not my cup.

Overall, awesome idea's and kudos on making it your own. Look forward to updated actual photo's if this gets put in motion!
