Bye Bye Pontiac , Hello HSV

The last p-p-pontiac (as Groucho would post) part is finally off the outside of my car.. getting ready to paint the new nose.

Looks great! Who'd you source the bar from? Are you changing the side skirts and rear bar too? Go for broke and swap the hood too

DAMN that looks great...scraped clean of the embarassing, nasty and disingenuous P-P-Pontiacness...

Gotta be the first HSV Coupe nose in the States, eh?

First one on the car.. Flashpoint on LS1GTO got his about same time I did but he works pretty hard so hasnt had time to finish all the details. Headlights are a bitch,,you have to use the HSV lens with our housing..means baking and seperating 4 lights and then pasting back together the correct set.

WOW. Great job. Was going to ask you about the lights -- as I've heard the wiring can be a real bitch.

I would absolutely LOVE to put an HSV front and rear on my car -- but I just don't have the time right now. Working to midnight tonight, easy, have more projects stacked up than an air traffic controller -- and just got called for jury duty.

dude that is bad-f'ing ass. I must admit the first time i saw that HSV front end i thought it looked like a grand am with an air dam, but it's really growing on me. Definitely original, you'll be getting lots of WTH is that looks.

its not just the wiring..the HSV lights are made for right hand drive.If you try using them youll blind everyone coming at you on the road here. Basically highly illegal.
