    Second.....but you already knew that I'll bet;)

    I like it 'cuz it almost looks like you could take the roof off and fit it right in there. Nice.

    are you going to fit the bumper guards to the body? I can't photoshop, but I drew lines on the guards in the attached photo to show what I'm talking about.

    Wow great looking Caddy man. I like the second option most definitely. Looks more proportionate with the window.

    Exactly my friend!

    The first version of the tailgate were not following any form of body.

    from an idea of Scacco (confirmed by the vote of Hamb friends) was taken the shape of the rear window and with these you created the hood line flowing and harmonious.

    Studebaker use something similar. "Climatizer". Not sure why it was better or easier than a little creative duct work.
