You guys reckon this is overboard?

Hey Guys,
Here's what I'm planning in doing to my EA Falcon. I know it seems fairly ricey, but the only cars I'm competing against are my friends (and they are all rice cars!).

Tell me what u think!

I think that would look quite good without the spoiler, as long as its not all show no go.

Re: You guys reckon this is overboard?

I actually do have plans for the engine, but seeing as I would have quite a wait before that, I was planning on doing the body first. Besides, I would have to wait till i'm off my P's, before I can "legally" get a serious engine modification.

Well smaller rear tail, and skip the centre bonnet scoop, and go for it (once engine is up to looks do the rest), the paint scheme is very cool.

Re: You guys reckon this is overboard?

kee[ the centre scoop, otherwise it looks far to flat. And as for the rear spoiler, keep it to a dull roar.

Re: You guys reckon this is overboard?

Personnally, I'd lower the rear wing a foot or two.

Other than that I like it.
