    i always wanted to do it to my car, but it sounds better than it looks. maybe if i could fill it in and make it more shapely like the 94-98 grille, and i'd leave out the pony

    He did it wrong... He actually cut away a lot of material. I plan to do that with my bumper, only its going to be a smaller opening! I have seen it the way I want, and it looks great!

    you'd think all that work put into the body and rust repair he'd at least changed out the GT moldings for LX.

    This car is the one I saw it on and thought it looked mean. Now that I look they appear to be the same size, but the teal car pulls it off MUCH better in my eyes!

    I will try and do mine this way, and even have the same bumper as the teal car!

    that nose on the teal car looks great. If I had an LX I would do the same thing, even the air dam.

    I have the air dam, and will most likely be doing that to the bumper! That along with a 3" cowl, should look mean :D

    ya know whats worse? in order to use all the moldings except for the door molding, he had to cut them off of the GT ground effects. the fender extensions and sideskirts are 1-piece with the moldings, as you can see in this pic...

    I dont care for the lx modifed at all. It would only look good with a 93 cobra grill with the top cut out. I have to come up with a prototype soon for carmedallions.com for a 93 cobra grill that is going to have the top cut out to fit one of their snakes. If anyones interested?
