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!

Here is the problem with that front end the openings you have on the side will interfear with the bumper support behind it.

Can it be made YES. Would you want to pay the price for the prototype and then to make it work properly the mold.. Well thats up to you. I can say that you are looking around 8-10k and that would in making the mold so you could be able to sell the parts and that would be a urethane bumper then.

Remember now Bumblebee wasn't a real production Camaro...What can be done on a movie car sometimes cannot be done of the actual production car without majjor modifications.
