Ive taken the week off work to do a few things

1. drink plenty of alcohol
2. go shopping at local wreckers
3. play with new parts from wreckers

Anyway butchered an el fairmont grille because they just dont cut it with the agressive look so after a few days of playing this is what i came up with

Thinking of possibly making a few more one with white inner instead of black as my cars white, and a neutral grey as well I got the idea of the typhoon type R.

what do u think.....
