    Awesome looking chop, and that'd make a sweet Buick. It just doesn't look like a GN to me though.

    being Australian, I'm not exactly with the Grand National and its history....so I might have to do a bit of research...and then maybe tweak my chop

    Very nice chop. In my opinion what it's missing is a bump in the hood. The GN's also had all their trim painted black, although I'm not sure that could be done or look good with your chop.

    1. Drop rear 1/4 window
    2. Hood scoop or bulge would help.
    3. Black
    4. Chevy concept lights would be better if more Buick and bigger
    5. More muscles, not so sleek

    Very good looking chop though. Would make a great Riv replacement.

    Re: Gnx-433

    thanks for all the comments everyone.

    I debated removing the rear 1/4 window and just making it one window, but the idea was that the rear passenger would have the ability to put their window down and alow some airflow if needed...something that many Monaro and GTO owners have asked for...but not received...

    that said I am working on a version without that 1/4 window, it also has a different headlight treatment, and might see if i can get a bonnet bulge happening

    I have been trying to successfully make it black....its getting there...I guess I'm just a bit fussy
