Wow, that looks amazing! I'd leave just a little bit of length to the bumper though.

maybe...would look even better when lift the exhaust tips up
cut some of the rear bumper? So that the tips floud more into the body...and not just hang under there...

well maybe it's just me..but should not fight about taist.

hope this helps you to get the idea what i was meaning.

The exhaust tips will be raised a little. This is similar to what I am doing for the exhaust.

I like your tips. The tips on the Bentley are my favorite. I think that elliptical tips keep with the overall theme of the Riviera.

Things are progressing nicely on the bumper. Here are more pics.

Looks very impressive so far.

The rear bumper is really getting tight! Your Riv is going to look like a real high end car.

That looks somewhat close to the Midnight Blue Pearl that my wife's 99 Riv is painted. Very cool work.
Is the Cobra from Unique Motorcars here in Gadsden?

No idea about the cobra. I just found the picture while researching the paint color.

Very close to Midnight Blue Pearl. I love it. Keep taking pictures.

Will the front look something like a 2004+ Jaguar or what?

I was thinking that if you came up with a mold for an improved front air dam you could market it here.

Am I that predictable?
Here is the design we are starting with. Only the bumper below the chrome molding is what I am interested in. I am sure the design will evolve as the bumper progresses.

Yes you could, I would think, depending on the final design.

The S-type's air dam is kind of common, but I'm not fond of what I've been sketching up either.

Oh no... not the Type-S! Just keep it below the chrome and should turn out ok! wink

You could always go this direction, too:

Yeah, that is what I am talking about. The bottom has a splitter that comes out toward the front but that may be impractical on a street car. At least one with out a sensor or camera to let you know how close to the curb you are.

But then I am just living vicariously through what you are doing.

Since you took out the original antenna, are you going to add one back somewhere? Like a small fin in the back center of the roof like some other cars.
