Doesn't the fiberglass kit come with a diagram on how it is installed? Does it use the radiator core support? Does the hood open like a stock hood or does the engine front end hinge from the front and close at the rear?

Also consider the steel repro fenders and hood and just use a fiberglass nose. Easier and much nicer unless you're going for the race car look.

Bowties are for Pee-wee Herman. "Chevy": even the name sounds cheap, but not as cheap as your Pontiac will be with an LS transplant.

Good points & don't forget the gto front valance, lamps & side markers which are different from a 70 LeMans. Lastly a VIN numbered LeMans is still a LeMans no matter what accessories it's wears.

why would you want to do this? The rubber GTO bumper is ugly. The Lemans chrome bumper is beautiful.

Debatable.
If i recall, the 2 gen Camaro advertising line was, "more glass, less chrome, more class".

I try to look at it logically. Wife would disagree.
There is a greater demand for the GTO's and first gen Firebirds. Its harder to sell a 2gen bird unless its a nice Trans Am.

I was actually referring to your cars, not the different bumpers. I should have been more specific. :)
