I say if you like it go for it. Here's a quick & dirty rendering...

Personally, I think it feels a bit unfinished without the roof done.

HI - 2 guys know out this way have done it (Carbon Fibre) - front bumper, hood (follow the hood lines instead of the whole hood) roof, spoiler & hatch as well - I don't have any pic unfortunatly but it looks real good (one on black & one on the metallic grey) IMO, if you do it, do the lip on the bumper as well & do the roof & hatch to complete the look, just so it flows nicely! :D

I say it looks best with just the hood, with the grille area blacked out it looks to much like VW copy. BTW love the Corvair ! What year ?

my buddy had it done to his Camry... I believe a place in Scarborough, if that's not too far for you I can find out.
