I am Currently restomoding a 71 Fastback. I designed a wide-body kit for the rear of the car and a more aggressive front nose. The back of the car is 6 inches wider than stock to accommodate the 315 on 12 inch rims.
I still see a pretty flat panel. Looks like the angle that runs from the nose to the door is mimicked only in the first few inches of the quarter just after the door. Then the test of the quarter is flat. I really thought that would be different. Need to see the car finished. Preferably in person. Pictures often say a different story. Cars looking cool. All metal is beautiful to look at. I just hope the gloss painted doesn't do something weird when it bounces off those two plain.

Paint is a good point Angelo, if you take notice on the new camaro ,where the door meets the rear panel the quick contrast in angle makes the paint look weird like a different color even sometimes pending on light.

Ya. The Camaro. I hope I get past that same issue on my own build.

This angle is really working for me.

I like that a LOT!!!

Great lines so far. Ok, it doesn't look exactly like a 71 anymore but there's the point in customizing something if it still looks exactly the same afterwards.

It's still clearly a 71 body though only with some changes.

Can't wait for it to be done.

Proportions look really good. A coat of clear on that metal and call it a day.

Ya,  very cool rendering, I don't see those angles on the build though. Lots more mods on deck lid angle and dimension ,etc coming I guess. Nice !!!

I think the taillights have some 69 Camaro look into it :)
Ya. He's put 69 firebird tail lights on a 68 fastback. That turned out cool. We'll see how This goes

That's pretty cool.

But then again, that's the end of the car I'm not so worried about.  :whistling:

I like it. Can't wait to see the finished product. I appreciate the level of creativity and attention to detail going into the project.
