I thought I would like how the front looks best, but that back end is TIGHT!

The entire look of the car has been improved, but those mirrors are a great touch, nice shape on the lens too!

Love the side profile of the rear. Almost looks like a Vette's silhouette. The mirrors are a nice touch. smile

Sorry if I missed this but was there any talk about the front signal lamps? I don't see them anymore.. lol Is this why you have the mirror blinkers? Wait... I think I answered my own question. hahaha

edit: NM... saw your post about it. quiet

Just as a side note for anyone interested: with the new front bumper the car runs about 8-10 degrees cooler. thumbsup

I really like the modified front and rear bumpers. As BMD said, that's what it should like like.
The small trunk lip is so much more pronounced now, in a good way.
Too bad i wasn't flush with cash, but I have too many other Iron's in the fire right now to do that mod.

SWEET! Near the end of the summer, I'm buying a set. The wife's car needs repainting and it would be a perfect time to do this.

Big time kudos!!!. It looks awesome and if I were Buick or GM, I would be calling you in to get advice on design/styling. It is definitely Euro but if you do make extra sets, please count me in for the pair.

That said, Harley Earl would be proud usa

Thanks for the kind words guys. I really like how things turned out. Tommy is the man. Its amazing how many people have asked me what year my Jaguar is.

After I get the front windshield tinted I will get some descent pictures of the car with a nice background and post "finished" outside pics. I might also put the finished pics in a thread in the showroom section so people won't have to go through 32 pages of build pics to see the finished product. What do you guys think.

That rear is so SLICK!!! I'm tempted to get one or both pieces for my car. Can the rear be gotten without the holes? I've got some ideas in mind...

Definitely make a showroom thread. Custom front and rear bumpers... they look really great. even a few days later!

Are you driving your car yet or still finishing the interior?

The rear bumper mold does not have the exhaust holes. That way people can do any exhaust they want.
