    Anyone have any photos? It's going to look a lot like a 1953 chevy with '53 bezels frenched, I know. But I want to do this on my 54 because I don't like the ribs/scallops inside the '54 bezels. I think the '53 will give a little bit smoother, tighter look. Any pics would be helpful.

    I have 53 bezels on mine because I like the way they look better than the 54's. Not frenched though. Just look at some 53's and use your imagination to french them.

    When using the '53 bezels on a '54 to french, would you need make a ring to fill up any space, Or will the headlight sit flush with the bezel?
