    That would require another pair of front fenders to do that correctly,,,too late now that it's painted,,,not to mention it takes a different tail panel as well with the back up lights in the lower valance. I agree though they look nice with the RS package,,along with the rubber enduro front bumper of course.

    hmm, I didn't know it took different fenders, I really didn't mean to convert it over to look exactly like an RS, I just like the hide-aways on the camaros, either way your car looks good, did you the bodywork yourself?

    Thats okay,,,I'm just pickin' anyway. I had a pair of SS 396's and one was an RS model,,,when I restored it I had a pair of NOS fenders for the car,,,and yes they are different from your basic fender, but not on the outside where it is noticable.. easy to pick a fake if you know what to look for. But for what it's worth, they repop anything you would want for the car anyway,,,you don't even have to have a car to start with,,,sheesh. Starting to see some retagged cars around here with the new bodies, which are not exactly the same,,,kinda sad. sorry to get off subject, carry on.

    Goodlooking car none the less,,,nice color.

    yeah, i started body work on the car about two years ago in school. did it all myself with a lot of instruction from instructors. also paint it myself... im too poor to have it all professionally done. all in all though im really happy with how everything has turned out so far.

    and yes your both right, an RS front would look sick!

    I'm pretty sure the Camaro venders sell an adaptor kit that allows you to convert the standard front end to all the RS stuff on the standard fenders. But to do it right will still not be cheap.

    yeah they sell a kit at classic industries, but its almost a grand... and right now all my money is goin into my LT1/T56 swap so i can drive the car on a daily basis. but it is an eventual goal, like 2 years or so from now

    That hood is actually an L88 design originally used on the 67-69 corvette for that particular motor option.

    Baldwin Motion also used this hood on some of there camaro conversions in the late 60's and early 70's so it's been around for a long time.

    Coming from an old school hotrodder,,,,I think the hood looks great. Not done much anymore and nice to see something different. I am sick of seeing a damn cowl induction hood on everything now,,,,even non GM products are using them now for crying out loud
    Drive it and have some fun
