Only fiberglass ones I'm aware of were not cut for factory bodies and require extensive modification to work.

I made a "one piece" front end using a factory bumper, fenders and headlight covers. Put quite a few pics in an older thread...

I just finished making my factory bumper and fenders a one piece. There was a lot of custom fabrication involved to get it perfect and rock solid strong. If I had the money I would have gone vfn because its a lot lighter and doesn't require nearly as much of a skeleton to keep it rigid. But on the other hand nothing looks as good as factory bumpers.

here is a idea of whats involved:

Front bumper skepeton may be removable for engine/trans removal out the front as one piece... hopefully that won't be needed often (whole reason for going to the bbc)
Now that I have it I will never own another race car that doesn't have a removable front end. It makes 100% easier to work on the engine. If you can afford to have it done its well worth it. I might start a build thread when I get some time. Ive taken pics of just about the whole re-build from last year.

we did a factory fenders and carbon nose setup a while back here: http://www.midwestchassis.com/damons...-am-build.html

we have done another one since, but with all factory fenders and bumper cover. Pictures of that full build will be released in a month or so.
