You have been busy, very nice clean looking. I wish the manufacturer's would have left the vent window on the cars, they were great.

Thanks for all the positive feedback guys! Its nice to see people admire a car that i have worked so hard on and built by myself in my garage... Here is a link to the album i put together with a few shots of different stages of the car from when i got it to where it is now.

At first I thought of early 50's Caddy lights or even 59 Caddy lights but must admit they look cool though.
