Yeah, I can say "boxy", like a 5th gen G body El Camino Very Happy Just had to get that dig in there for the Elco guys Very Happy

I like my Malibu and Elco in stock form, but it's all a matter of taste. I do like the early Laguna front end though.

Boxy, like a 5th gen Elky is better than a gumdrop, like a 2010 Furd Taurus. I guess somebody likes gumdrops, they sure sell a bunch of them. The best looking cars came from the 1950s and every car was differant. Now everything looks like a gumdrop regardless of brand. JB

Ah...... young kids are all alike as well with no taste in music & no respect for their elders. Razz

Anyways, back on topic with customizing an Elky. The Laguna front end was mentioned earlier & brings up a good point. People do this swap all of the time & no one complains. What's the difference if you have to bolt on fenders & doors as well? All of these parts are bolted on & can be reversed so it's not like you are hurting the car/truck's value any.

So quit bla-blahing and do up a pic for it, I'd like to see what it might look like.

Bout damn time you put on your big boy pull ups Kyle.

Captain Chaos, it might take me a while to do the Photoshop. First I need some actual photos to work with & both cars need to be taken at the same/similar angles in order for it to look right. Otherwise I'll be happy to do it. Very Happy

Here's a quickie. You kind of need to use your imagination since I screwed the color change up & didn't feel like messing with it anymore.
