Are the rear flares flat stock that you guys formed into flares or were they existing flares that you modified to fit? The fillet area looks like would have come from the factory that way. So many flares have radical fillet angles instead of the shallow look you did.

What method of plastic welding did you use for the bumper? I didn't even know you could do stuff like that. Googled it , thus the question.

Great looking car. I've got a 2005 ZHP and it told me when it grows up it wants to look just like that. You should be proud of the work you accomplished.

im at second round of block sanding.

I would like to know more about where you found the rear fender flares
how many coats of clear are on the paint job

Any specific information on stretching that rear bumper, the plastic welding ive done in the past turned out brittle.
The level of craftsmanship and paint work is impressive.

I'm at a point where I can go any direction with this ...i was going to go black but now...i dont know....like you i want something a little different.

Didn't do any of that for quite a few reasons. The motor is still not fully put in and done. Once it's all in running correctly....and when I pass smog the mods will begin! Custom LSD diff, headers, intake...etc.
