    Had a bunch of pics I had grabbed from the web and wanted to share them.

  3. I like them on customs but no so much on hot rods, when they are used on a hot rod I just think the builder is trying to combine a custom with a hot rod, if that's what they want it's fine with me.

    Everybody has different ideas of with looks best and that is up to the individual, on hot rods I prefer the big headlights where others prefer the king bee. HRP

    So, I got the tail lights "roughed in"... When finished, they'll be molded in and painted black IMG_0266.JPG IMG_0267.JPG along with the rest of the truck. I realize this is a head light thread, but these were inspired by the quads on the front...

    To each his own, I guess, but I've never liked the canted headlight look; it always makes me think of an old lady with bee-hive hair-do and those old ugly horn-rim glasses.

    This one popped up on my Facebook feed, this morning. Not sure if it's a U.S. build with a Canadian grille or a Canadian build. FB_IMG_1599149407808.jpeg FB_IMG_1599149411371.jpeg FB_IMG_1599149413830.jpeg FB_IMG_1599149419541.jpeg
