Dang, that looks fantastic. The mistake in my opinion that the ring brothers made was that they also widened the rear QP extensions and even the headlight housings. So the far is literally about 2" wider front to back. And it makes everything look goofy and out of proportion.

See how wide the QP extensions are, the headlights and doors are just as wide. It actually looks even more goofy in person.


I usually love just about every thing they do and the fastbacks do wear the widebody better. But this thing is awful.

Thanks for your comments Ryan, the owner was originally set on the same type of Ring brothers 2+2 build, In all thruthness I dont like it either, to the casual eye you cant tell what they did, so we wanted something that made a statement, you can all it on steroids or a fastback with a nice @ss LOL, we like how it came out....

That's the same company that makes all my ABS interior pieces. They were just down last week talking
about those panels. They also make the new Shelby hoods out of poly carbonate there.

If you want to contact me please send me an email at hotrodmtf@gmail.com and not a PM through this forum. Thanks.

You guys are the ones that should be making these panels that I'm talking about designing. They would go perfect with some of the other stuff you have. I need to get a preliminary drawing out to show you what I'm talking about but I think once you see where I'm going with this you'd agree.

I just recently saw that one. Damn that thing is cool! Reminds me a lot of the Ken Block Mustang.
