'59 Catalina, yessir. Its what the build I'm working on should look like.

Do you think it looks better with or without the side molding?

Honestly, I am not sure, I may be leaning a bit towards the moulding.

If I'm allowed to vote, I like the moldings. I think it makes it look longer and lower...... Pretty car!

I like them both and that doesn't happen often. I usually see one and say, yep, definitely that one, but in this case, no.....strange.

Well, the fish hook behind the rear wheel doesn't really flow with the lines and with no door handle, I'd say no molding. You might want to experiment with deleting the molding on top of the fin. That looks slightly out of place in the bottom pic.

Like them both. Leaning a little more to no molding.

Cat and Bonne trim both? I used to work at a truck accessory place and could spot a bling lover from a distance. If they still had a window sticker that was the best kind. I find bling revolting so its good theres such thing as photo editing programs.

Anyone in for just straightening the Cat fish hook at the rear, just taking the hook away? The hook is a separate piece so a straight extension could be made to replace it.

You are not only allowed but encouraged, sir! I digress... at some point I inadvertently squished the image while editing. Caught it when I went to do the before and after in one image. I was like... "Boy, that looks longer and lower." A Long man would of course like that best. I attempted to correct it and its more correct in the two-in-one pic.

I thank you for your thoughts, gents. Just what I was after, raw input. Heres an imaginary IDJ penny apiece for them, even if you did put in two's worth.

Lake pipes don't belong on that car as it takes away from the theme. Some rocker molding and get rid of the fishhook on the rear. that car needs some chrome..
