The big one is the bottom of the front bumper is higher than the bottom of the front edge of the rocker. I wanted to stretch the bottom lip of the bumper to extend it lower but ran out of time.
2.Shave the door handle?

    No, I've done cars with shaved door handles before and they end up being a huge annoying pain in the ass...

      Since your door handle is sideways could you somehow retrofit the corvette handle on your car? So then it's "shaved"

          ... You don't think I already tried 4 different door handles on the car during the build phase? lol

          Seriously, I did... We ended up painting them at least, which IMO is a big improvement from stock silver.

          Kindig Designs makes a real nice smooth door handle I like, problem is they're $600usd. I came real close to ordering a set from another company that were the same price and offered free shipping. Then they pissed me off when it was free shipping to the border but $150 to Winnipeg. :(
