I think my car is having an identity crisis.. I know the hood and bumper don't match, but i'm gonna make it work.. She's hibernating for the winter, but come spring it's on like donkey kong

I feel like there's a hand full of us about to go crazy with our G8s next year. It's exciting stuff. I like those copper wheels too, and the hood will look good. How will you get it to match up with the bumper? Good luck!

Personally, I'm turning mine into a G/28 (trademarked! ). The mechanical parts of the puzzle are coming together but it's far behind in the looks department. Some hail damage on the hood, busted bumper, scratched rear bumper...

You can get the entire front end conversion from JHP in Australia. It's not cheap though.

It is a very neat look.
In my case the money part is sorta doable.
Its the aptitude, ability, know how, patience, tools, phone booth garage....

Haven't heard the donkey kong analogy in quite some time... lol. At any rate, the car looks good and am interested as well in how it will look once finished. Be sure to post pictures.

Nice. Where did you get the LED strip cover? I've only seen the headlamp assemblies with bare LEDs.
