i reckon they could look pretty good if you blended them into the curve of the front of the bonnet. you want it so the natural curve of the front of the bonnet extends upwards at the same rate, and then continues onwards as the scoop, the square sides wont be such an issue if the front is in keeping with the bonnet.

just my opinion

They would probably fit a facelift or mk2 well, with its longer bonnet and sharper lines.

Proportion benny, they need to be reduced a bit, rounded off, and then moulded into the bonnet, and you will have a winner. At the moment they are to boxy.

Hi Ben first    i agree with marky looks like you picked up a few scott bonners at a garage sale    second      i hope my roof dont look that shit  serious now we buy a bedford for there looks so why change them its fine for flares and front spoilers  but when we try to make then look like something else start with a transit who cares  or go and buy a chevy lets try to keep the shape of our beddys there cool as thay are thats my two cents worth    rizzo out
do it today there might not be a tomorrow
