I am not usually a fan of modifying the bodies but that front end is BAD ARSE!!!!! Can't wait to see it finished. It needs to be painted a color that is really menacing. That front end appearing in your rear veiw mirror will be very intimidating. I love the headlights!!!:thumbsup:

Just Curious............WHY?

Florida, Cost, simplicity, and durability....sunlight kills clear coats, they turn yellow, then peel like a yankee in winter....yet to see a clearcoat car with any age on it have a clean unfaded color to it, much less any finish left....

case in point, my fugly olde Dodge van work truck....been polished ONCE down here years ago....and the paint has NO PEELING, the body is pretty damn good for a vechicle seldom if ever washed....and it's got NO clearcoat...same brown/tan it allways was....I did paint the top white for a/c purposes though, HAD to that dropped interior temps 20f right there, easy...it was brown.......

the vette is a 20+ y/o urethane paint job, the hood was done down here ten years ago, same paint.....old Ditzler Radiance II done in Deltron acrylic urethane....had some cans of it from previous owner, which is on the hood now....stupid paint has NO sun damage....I have urethane on the front fenders because of hitting a deer, and no original paint, so went urethane one step, then a year ago, a verizon truck backed into the bumper...figgers, soon as it looked 1/2 assed decent, so I fix that too....

but in 40 years of cars/driving/painting, I find the worst paint jobs had clear coat on them....never lasted worth a damn.....

I had the goat near 12 years, never would have sold it, but no garage space...so it or the vette, kept the vette....

I tend to keep a car/van forever....fix it till HELL freezes over...

You could paint it purple with pink polka dots, and I"d STILL be jealous as hell over that overall design/look....

GREAT WORK man...good eye, saw it right....

I was cruising through and was thinking the same thing. I usually don't like the aftermarket headlights in the C3's but those just look plain mean. Good work. I actually like the flat black on your car too.
