That does have a lot of really nice custom touches on it. I like it. Some sort of "see through" engine cover would be a great finishing touch for the clean engine swap, perhaps either clear or open mesh.

I'd have to install original style early bumpers. Can't quite love the old American car bumper style. Love the Daytonas and the engine transplant. Not quite feeling the tail light treatment. Hard to tell exactly what he did there.

Love the car though, looks like it'd be a riot. And oh boy, are those Ferrari logos I see?

I hope he doesn’t get upset , I didn’t want to post to much as it’s not my x but motherF I just love it. Wish I could have found him yesterday to bs and heard this thing start up. Here is what I took of it, it’s just sooo sexy !! Not to mention this dude has some major talent, the work was just flawless .

I'm glad you posted more Pics. After seeing the first one (in your original post), I had to go look at his build thread - as posted by @darwoodious. There really aren't a lot of pics in that thread, so the more the better.

Is it the shorty bumper vs full length that you are referring to, or the actual profile/shape of them? Personally I prefer the slim, tucked and clean Camaro ones over the original early ones.

I don't think so. I believe they are the bucking jackass that Ricardo made.

Not sure all the modifications are to my taste, but they are wonderfully done.
to each is their own really I will say. I am honestly all about original everything if where possible. This x is truly amazing in person :) Even the paint and body work were superb ,unlike nearly 90% of repaints I’ve seen look horrible.

No not Ferrari logos "Donkey". I should send out a special thanks to Ricardo I did borrow/steal his logo. I had a friend of mine print them on some vinyl and then I stuck them on the stock Fiat badges.
The tail lights are 4 inch round trailer lights off a semi. I just changed the radius of the corner near the edge of the body a little bit and welded a flat panel in to fill the stock tail light hole. I get that not everybody will like the types of modifications done. And I truly appreciate negative as well as positive feedback. It's the only way we can learn. But the modifications I've done on this I've tried to make look like they would be done by Bertone If they weren't loaded by the DOT of their era. And production requirements.

Mission accomplished, and then some! I think the Camaro bumpers look even better than the old-style blades+blocks. I couldn't tell from the build thread: how do you mount those bumpers? Maybe collapse the stock bumper shocks and bolt to them using some kind of fabricated mount on the bumper itself?
