I like the fiero with suttle mods. Like the pontiac emblems shaved, or the front bumper cover opened a little wider ,antenna changer to a power antenna and mounted at the rear. I see alot of cars with too many mods and it goes from cool looking to tacky looking.....IMO

Low-pro has been done, don't know about ovals though. The closest thing I've seen would be very bright fog lights or "driving" lights. Probably wouldn't be DOT-approved and probably wouldn't work worth a crap. Like these

Try searching motorcycle headlights to find a *true* headlight that's oval like that

Norm received the new Corvette headlamps for the front flipper. This will look nice with the new chop'd rear hatch-clip.

Thank you again, hehe. Archie's talented crew is at work making Mad-plans on the rear hatch clip. This should be a "killer" look!

I've had them since 2000 and where my first choice for #11 but, I never got around to using them until Norm's Front Flipper (NFF) come along. I have some old pics of me testing the fitment. Why now? The NFF doesn't have hood lines allowing for the Firebird vent to go outward. Plus, the Corvette headlamps upper part flows outward like an eyebrows.

The nice thing about them is: The vents have multi-usage. The inner vent were used on the redux and on #15. I originally used them on #11 but, I made the vent a little too small. Oh well, I'm still learning, hehe.

Here are the (inserts) using the Firebird vents

Edited once more for the more accuracy. From what I took from descriptions it should look close. I am having extreme difficulty matching the colors so it looks real fake, and the angle isnt complimenting the lights and vents very much.

edit: misread a previous post

Modify your photoshop to use the turn/driving lights from the 1999/2002 Trans Am and I think it will look better. The huge round bug eye driving lights don't do the lines justice. Just my thought.

Forgot the bug eyes are still there...and I even have a Trans Am.... But the corner signal/daylight driving lights are still cool....LOL

No need. The front turn signals are located inside the Corvette headlamp.

My latest edit, It took me a while, I had to search parking lots for cars that had round fog lights similar to madcurls drawing. A 2000 Bonneville SSEi did.
