It does look good.

I notice the front cornering lamps are missing. They were a Ghia standard fitment. They must have been displaced at some point.

Cheers

yeah we think the front has been replaced/needing respary as with the roof as you can't see all the marks on it and it doesn't quite line up with the side pannels on one side

more pictures will be up soon

well considering it was hit by a roo and repaired it looks alot better than it was, and the red strip was pink so having it off looks better than it did with it on

Not sure about the deleted side mouldings. But that's just my opinion.

i really wouldnt waste your time unless it was a gli, maybe it would look good with the gli body kit, faimonts are already nice as is with rims and lowering i wouldnt molest it too much

it's getting a full typhoon body kit, typhoon mags, xb bonnet so the doors would be something simple to change out just like the rest of the kit. Nothing is perminat and can be removed if it doesn't look or go with the rest of it.

since you have plans for the phoon kit i geuss thats a different story,if your good at editing photos like you did above try filling it in on the computer and have a think about it, might suit the phoon kit nicely? i thought about filling the sides in with body filler but lost the idea when i seen some d**k driving a blue vn with the sides filled in and they hadent sanded it good enough to make it look smooth you could actually see the bog wasent perfectwith the body, and it would be hard to get right

lmao if i was to fill it in i'd get a pro to weld it up. not bog it, as it could crack/fall out etc lol.

actually that looks good with no mold, remove it at once
