    I agree with lose the visor on either look but like the Torque Thrusts best.

    Keep the mag wheels and put some hubcaps on the front wheels with the skirts covering the rear.

    Mr48, I got a extra visor that would bolt right on your truck if interested :D

    As far as which look is better, I like both looks. I would probably drive it one way for a year, then switch it over to drive it that way for awhile .... maybe new owner would do same?

    My preference would be the first pics without the visor and with some Cadillac or similar early 50's wheel covers.

    I like the idea of shaved bumper guards on either version. I'd probably say the same for the half moon headlight shields.

    I don't dislike sun visors OR Torq Thrusts on the right car but I'm not feeling either on this particular car.

    I'd probably also re-dress the engine with some more period looking stuff although I'm not sure that would make a big difference for resale purposes.

  5. I would go with the whites, Caddy caps, skirts, visor and taildragged but that's just me ;)

    Sell both ways as a kit.
    My likes tend to go to the visor, skirts and whitewalls.
    But a custom needs a full hubcap.
