    NO GO ...

    I like the bodykit (some) .. but the headlights need to stay ... I love the cohesive Solstice design, and this kist ruins it IMO..

    however propf de a great chop .. the only piece lacking are the lower intake vents - the shading is typical PS graduation - and as all of them - looks fake and trows off the chop.

    I'm not a fan of the hood bulges, I think it should be more the other way with a strong ridge down the middle with the arrowhead emblem on it in the middle of the grille, much like many of the GTO cops you see. Or maybe keep it, and put the emblem back in the middle. I don't like the asymetrical vents either, it's too 1980's Chrysler turbos, or turbo wanna be's. I'd rather see them more like the T/A's and GTA's of the late 80's/early 90's, up towards the windsheild, if at all. It does look technically pretty good to me, I don't do chops, I've never tried. Love those wheels.

    Looks pretty intimidating too me. I like what you've done w/ the hood. I'd like to see that on production GXPs, but w/out the louvers.

    EXELLENT chop quality and execution, but imo a good bodykit for the solstice should continue the curvyness of the car, not go against it.

    Good work. I would stretch the headlights out towards the fenders more to compliment the curves on the rest of the vehicle. Looks very tough though!
