the wheels sure change the look.

the frenched in plate area... if done differently would have looked good.

I like the hideaway license plates too. Not sure if they are legal in most states or not

Just a suggestion... picture how the back of the car would look if you rounded the bottom corners of the trunk lid to match the radius of the new tail lights.Then everything in the back view including the back window would be rounded. What you have done with the tail lights is a nice improvement regardless.

Hi Art, looks great Very Happy

i think chimp nailed it with his suggestion, can i offer 2 more?
if i owned something that good, i would tuck the rear bumper up to the body & add a couple of overriders..
& i actually liked the number plate recess, i just would have rounded out the corners for it.
( but seeing as you removed it i guess you dont want to put it back Laughing Laughing )
Either way, it's still a sweet ride Very Happy

Boy I don't know but it looks as though the front end is a bit high. Couldn't you get it a bit lower?
