    I know they are hard to see, but does anyone know anything about these headlights? had someone tell me one time exactly what they were but now he doesn't remember. :) I still have them and might like to put them back on. My Dad put a big scratch on one but might be able to repair it.

    I bet you are glad the paint choice is done and over! I like it way better than the yellow, looks like a hot rod now.

    Started to put a few pieces in. Windshield, Quarter windows etc... Color sanded most of the weekend. I had never done that before so i was quite nervous. i didn't get it 100% perfect. To honest i was chicken! I got it about 96 % :)

    I remember seeing those headlights in old Speedway Motors ads. Think they were called drum headlights.

    Love the color! Gold is my favorite. Looks like a 60’s show car color! Can’t wait to see it all together!

  25. GREAT JOB !!! You'll need some angel hair, and mirrors. Then enter it in the Jalopyrama, on May the second. It looks like it's 1962 again.
