OK, but it is still a CJ image. Here are some pics:

I think he used the CJ surround not sure. But nothing else.
EDIT: Actually no he started from scratch. Also noticed the tips on the back don't match up to the original either, the belly curves at the bottom and the eyes are completely different from the cobra jet. I think if i was trying to make my car a cobra jet i would of changed my 5.0 badges, my decklid emblem, use the cobra jet logo, install the cobra jet quarter window panels, put an off center strip down the center of the car and not have done many of the exterior mods i've done. Thats only if i was… not really the case here though.

I love how it came out though. Very stealthy just how i imagined. Will post better pics sometime this month. Thanks for the compliments guys.

I'm curious how it will hold up...I had a friend wrap his bike and he regretted it a few months later because a rock chip opened a spot on the wrap and then it just peeled back away from it in the wind...that was a few years back and wrap has come a long way since then...so hoping it holds up better...

Regardless...it does look awesome!

You and me both. Lol Felt like pretty durable stuff though. The rocks would have to go through it first to hit the paint. I know it comes with a warranty but can't remember how long at the moment. Otherwise you would have to pay to get that section re wrapped. Thinking about getting a bra for longer trips.

EDIT: Just ordered a Colgan bra for longer trips. Cant be too safe!

I ordered my colgan bra from autoanything.com and used this 16% coupon FRMTUNDRA16 if you're interested.

I'll check it out. They arent all that noticable except to me. To me they look hideous. What I should do is save a couple grand and buy a beater to do all my daily driving with. That will help with the rock chips and milage.

LOL! That's exactly what I'm trying to do... My biggest fear is hail damage...

I haven’t had a bra on a car since my 1986 firebird formula! I don’t think I have ever seen a coyote with one on.

I'll post a pic for u when I get in in a few weeks. I'm only going to put it on if I hit the highway. Always big trucks flinging rocks. Otherwise it's staying off.

I had a bra on my 88 5.0 back in the 90's. I passed on buying a beater last year because I love driving this car so much. But I do drive 100 miles a day so the rock chips concern me as well as the value because at this rate I'll have 150K on it when I finally decide to buy a new one. All the mods I put on have added great gas mileage...except for the cat deletes - mainly because I get on it more now.

My Bro-in-law is sending me some samples of some of his vinyl and I'm leaning toward letting him wrap the hood and the roof just to help protect them a little. It's the premium textured carbon fiber stuff. All it will cost me is the materials and some coldies.

Yeah I've seen people get their whole car done in this.

Invisible bra would have been a good idea when the car was new.
