in the front i frenched the headlights and shaved the hood, nothing crazy, just a mild custom i guess. The tail lights are 1989 caddy fleetwood lighst and bezels with the bottom 3 inches cut off. I am gonna try to pull it all the way out of the garage this weekend and take some overall pictures. I just finished the 12 volt / alternator conversion yesterday.

Tail lights look great.
Weld up that three piece front bumper and eliminate the through bolts.
