I would guess the reason for the 2-piece design is due to limitations of Protoform's molding equipment.

....Or maybe it means that they will have an alternate nose to recreate a 1971 Z28....

Hey Tommy, the Jerry Titus scheme was actually just one-off decals for the photoshoot and are not included. You can still use your aftermarket set.

Here is the decal sheet that is included:

I know you are right, without some intricate multi piece mold that can be broken down inside the completed body I don't see a way around it. Its just a small price to pay for the detail they get on these things!

The new PF body does look sweet - but I don't get why they would call a Fire Chicken a "FORD" name w / the Thunder Chicken (Thunderbird) Oppps

I would be afraid to race this thing - it looks like it should be a Shelf Queen, or only driven around at a Car Show...

A lot of people get that moniker wrong.

This is one of the nicest bodies I've seen Protoform make.

So the $64,000 question is...

Come on guys, its been a day, you're slacking...
