I'd suggest painting some masking tape with primer and cover one of the tail lights and take a picture and post the two photos for comparison. Another thought I know you already reworked the exhaust but how about mimicing the shape of the tail lights.
Just a thought.
Keep up the good work.

I was looking at this picture of the back end of the chevelle . kinda reminds me of an 67 impala, may have to lose those center tail lights what do you think??
I love what your doing with this build.

Just a quick thought.

If your trying to take styling cues from several years of Chevelle Malibu, then the 4 taillight setup works awesome with the 4 headlight setup and balances the front and rear of the car nicely. The only thing I am against here, is the use of the Camaro taillights as it is indicative to the Camaro itself and shouldnt be shared with another GM muscle car especially from the same family. Just my opinion. Maybe shorten and lengthen the taillights to more resemble the 68ish style of go more rounded like the 71-73. I jus think that parts were not lent from one car to another back then (Camaro parts on a Chevelle Malibu) but know that there is some parts that have crossed over here on this build but something like the tail and headlights should be left specific to each model.
Either way.... I love this build!!! Awesome work.
Here's a good link to view the different styles through the years. http://www.yogisinc....cat/cat2882.htm
I seen Psychographic helped you out with a little Photoshop action so I figured I jump in this pool. Whaddya think?
1970 taillights widened
1965 taillights with the inner one just a duplicate of the outter one mirrored.
1970 taillights shortened and stretched the outters. The inners shortened and removed the reverse lights as well as mirrored them from the outters.

The round tail lights make it look sort of like the back of a Corvair, no ?
I can see what your saying but the actually taillights are different from those of a Corvair and we featured on the 71-74 Chevelle Malibu's. See Corvair taillights were protruding and the Chevelle Malibu's were just the opposite. I toyed with ovaling them out buuuuuuuuuuuuuut... then they look way to much like a current Vette with 4 of em.
I personally like the 70 taillights widened and possibly shortened. Think it gives it a uniquely Chevelle Malibu modern look without being to "weird" is that makes sense. LOL
Oh and if I forgot to mention it before... most definitely the square or more rectangularish exhaust tips!!!
