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.

Now that you said it, I really see the Grand Am in it. Can anyone post the two fronts side by side? Guess that's just one more piece the Aussies borrowed from GMNA to make this car. LOL

your joking right?
only a die hard blind Pontiac groupie could possibly see anything Pontiac in that front end..
I've never driven a pontiac vehicle in my life. Yet.





pretty F'ing close if you ask me. Doesn't mean it doesn't look good though. :cool

no way look at the history of HSV and you'll see where it came from
well if anything i'd expect pontiac to copy it rather than the other way around, still though you can't dispute the similarities.

its all done,,its also filthy and full of handprints so Ill give her a bath
when the sun goes down and take some more pics this week.
couldnt for the life of me get the front clips on fender to go in correctly,
took it to body shop freind and they also couldnt get them in,
for some reason,whether because its a used bumper or what not,
there needs to be about 1/8" shaved off corner of bumper for both
the clips and the fender to line up perfectly.
After almost 5months of hassles and spending money Im too
tired and too broke to bother with it so it stays like this for now.
Thanks go out to
