Very nice! Do the hood struts really work or are they static?

Nice subtle upgrades to the car, much more character than stock.

Absolutely Fantastic work Ismael. Your car, Bob's car, that is what the 612 should have been.
My question is the same as Bob's, are those struts for looks or do they really work?

Thanks guys,
(whispering) Pssst: Bob, Chris: technically, the struts work, but they are very stiff and do not allow the hood to close completely, so for all practical purposes, they are static :)

Thanks,

I love the side scoop. It was hard to tell what was done to the body. In my opinion, thats the best way to design. I go by the virtue of: "If people ask what I did, then what I've done belongs with the car. It doesnt stand out, and I've done my job right."

Great work. The background is magnificent as well.

Fantastic job Ismael! I don't know which is more impressive: the laser-sharp build or the killer setting. Beautiful...just beautiful!
