Norm's new fender?

So, Norm calls it a ZR1 fender, I think it looks more like an early TransAm.

What do you think?

I agree Dave, just that the divider in the center of the opening is lifted on the ZR1 fender and that's how Norm design his fenders....
Now if the Solstice had the indentations on the door and fender like the ZR1 has it would be another story, just beautiful.

I believe it looks better on the ZR1 because the door lines and curves, it just looks mean on the ZR1, still a nice piece though

Even though it appears to look more ZR, T/A would sound better heritage marketing wise.

On another post about lifting pads, there is a car done by Unique Fab. that has vented fenders with screen inserts. Funtional without the buldge. Does Norm make those?

Those fenders are still my favorite by far.

He also made the rear fascia on that car but was never credited for either. A shame.

It was the car they built for Neil Tjin.

^So true! I've wanted them ever since I saw Unique Fabrication's build on Tjin's solstice back in the day. I wish their site still had all the build pics, these are the closest I can find and there are none of them installed.

Actually if you go to Norm's site on the Solstice page, go to the bottom of the page where the Solstice racing parts are and go to picture 18 and 19, you'll see pictures of that car.
