    I came across this video of a 355 wide body there getting ready for some thing called sema.
    I am looking forward to seeing the end result.

    Hard to top the original design...

    Cool process working with the clay though.

    Normally I love wide body cars. (RWB, Rocket Bunny, etc.) But this one doesn't look right to me. I can appreciate the skill in working with clay but what they created looks awkward to me. Maybe it's the wedge design of the 355? I don't know, but I am not a fan so far.

    Both the button cars won't be at SEMA, he posted on instagram that something happened to them in transit to his shop that was going to cause a major delay.

    Simple point measuring equipment will do it. Then it's just a matter of joining the dots with clean sweeps and sections.

    Exactly. Smooth flowing lines that enhance the original bodywork.

    Normally I tend to like the widebody versions, but not so much on the yellow one.
    On the contrary, that 355GT is perfect!
    I wonder where it is today? Who crafted those fenders?

    I own a former Sema feature car with a wide body Kit and I must say, it’s my favourite car right now.

    Other than the liberty wide body kits, (no offence to those with one), I’m a big fan of wide body treatment if it’s well executed.

    The Maranello GTS track cars with the wide body freatment look great and I can’t wait to see how this turns out.

    Just staring at that corner maybe you're seeing the lines if the new mustang or Camaro. Definitely american looking by the lines.

    Yup - love the Button work and the Cali style is pretty big all over now.
