I've seen this kit and always laughed because the Prowler was such a bad idea. Your plan looks pretty neat though. Can I assume you'll be ditching the trailer?

The Prowler was the most daring vehicle ANY motor car company has ever tried! 

 

And I like what you're doing here!

:D LOL

Question: what kit provided the front side cove and what filler are you using?

The side coves were created using the two halves from a Corvette Grand Sport hood I had in my parts bin, the rear quarter coves were from the tailights from the same Corvette body. The filler I am using is Bondo Pro Gold. (Great stuff, bonds amazing to plastic when sanded.)
