I personally don't much care for the two small notches / fins in front of the radiator grill. I was thinking of removing them..any views ??


Cheers
I`d say remove the notches, the rest of the car looks great, the scooby like huge cutouts look great

@ Badboyscad
I don't think I am going to put the spoiler just yet. I'd like to wait for the main work to get over & will take a call later. Are you getting itchy about doing some photoshop ??? You are welcome to oblige if you so desire !!

@ Dipen
May or may not go for the scoop, will take a call later, BBD had done some nice photoshop & put a scoop on the hood, looked good.


@Evo
Thanks for your input.



Cheers

Still waiting for some parts to arrive The wait is frustrating - but once the engine starts to sing it's song, it's (hopefully) going to be worth the while.

Saw the car when i was collecting my civic back from Arush. The Bumper is looking FAB Ricky, leave the notches. Its looking perfect, And yes a EVO spoiler is also what it needs.

Keep the notches.they lend a character of their own to the car.It'll look good with the paint on.get the head lights to meet the bumper properly.there should be no gap in between.it'll give a great look to it.

Navpreet thanks for your inputs. The bumper WILL fit perfectly with the lights, it's now in the "process" stage. The final bumper when casted WILL be perfect (I hope)

About the notches - I am still not too sure. I feel without the notches one sees a little more of the grill !!



Cheers

Agreed, but i feel the notches add a little more aggressiveness to the front look.

^ Exactly.Its an aggressiveness that should be portrayed to help people know that this is something not to be messed around with.

The expression on a civic,RS,accord etc. owner would really be something worth the view when you smoke them off a red light.(Even though i own one!)

@BBS, Navpreet

I respect your POV, but I am not the aggressive types , seriously I'll take a call once the Hella 1000's are temporarily fixed into the bumper..the overall look will deceide the fate of the notches

Unless BBS wants to be gracious enough to do some photoshop chops !!! Thanks in advance.



Cheers
