      I saw a photo of that thing in an earlier discussion.

      Personally, I think it's an eyesore.

      Front end is all right, but the rear is ugly.

      they didnt even remove and fill the rear lights with sheetmetal, or they did a bad hack job... looks liek they just painted over the real taillihgts.... and that corvette bumper?! ewwww... might be ok on a chevy truck, but its a ford... also i dont really care for the front end... it has like 3 grills!

      Why all the bashing. I like the uniqueness of the whole thing. I'm into SAS explorers, but you can tell someone put a lot of TLC into this thing. you have to appreciate it, there is not another like it.

      Not that I would be seen it, but I can see why someone would be proud of it.

      Real nice, except for the rear. Corvette rear-ends don't look good on anything, and only look OK on Corvettes. Are those stock seats that are just painted?

      I seriously hope they wouldn't do all that work and then just paint the seats! But no, they don't look like stock because of the ribbing. I can't picture an X with any seats of that style.

      I agree with Black Magic and most of the other comments so far. Bad idea in the first place, but he did a pretty good job building it.

      I was looking closely at the rear lights and decided that it looks like he must have have them cut out. The rear bumper could be easily changed out with a different custom rollpan. It has 185k on the engine, though it looks good, how long will the engine hold out?

      I wonder what the reserve on that is? What's he expecting to get?

      First, I DO like his system setup (not the doors) and the center console.

      I'll give him props for the front end because he blended it pretty good, but the rear, holy shit. He didn't even try to mold the pan. And he could have thought of something better than vette lights.

      I've never seen a rear of a vehicle look so bad.
