    Yeah a little custom bracket holding an old light housing
    inside the window frame seems much cleaner.

  10. Good stuff MercuryMitch. Love the finish on exh. bracketry & interior concept is something else- really cool. I'm in for what's been suggested on the tailight, and LED would probably get it done. Man this car would look good as a custom.

    Sorry folks ,this thread is more about learning for me and others.I realise it is not a belly button car,i am building it my way and to suit all our rules and regulations over here.You folks in the USA don't appear to have any rules at all(very lucky)

    on page one when you said you had a wheel and were going to cut all the rusty parts off and replace. I was thinking, you mean throw the entire thing in the trash. amazing work to bring that back to life.

    Unbelievable build Mitch, you have a great eye for sheetmetal fab, you could be running classes on the how to's of sheetmetal work. Lee
