    The wifes GTO remodel...





    I let my wife drive my car ONE time and she rips the front facia off. Oh well I wanted a Monaro front end anyway. Anyone know of anywhere other than JHP that has good kits that won't rape you?

    Damn wifes. My wife totalled my 1967 GTO in December 1998. At least yours is fixable, my car was not.

    She parked too close to one of those big ass city curbs (which I warned her several times about) and when she backed out she noticed it was hung, panicked, and gave it too much clutch which raised the ass end and squatted the front end effectively removing the old SAP front from my Goat.

    Ouch, what shape are the fenders in? Seems like the bumper getting torn would result in some damage elsewhere.

    Edit: Took another look at the pics, not bad at all

    PS: monaro front ends look badass

    Well, luckily the guy who owned it before me had that 3M clear film applied when it was new and it saved the paint on the front fenders. I have wanted a Monaro front on this thing since I bought it, so she kinda did me a favor and insurance is paying for it...

    Unless I find a cheaper place than JHP I'll be ordering the front kit tomorrow. I'll re-post with some pics of the new stuff when she's done.

    Oh man!!! I'm glad I am single and the ONLY one who drives my GTO. I would be UBER pissed. I dunno how your car would look with the Monaro bumper/SAP kit. Unless you are talking about the HSV front cover.
