  2. Love that green metalic. Wild car . Not to smart taking a photo of an Edsel when someone is standing right in front of that oh so prominent :p grille :eek:.
     
  3. Loving the colors and overall look. I almost put an Edsel cluster in the dash of my '59 Ford. Have fun with it.

    One pic has the original steering wheel and another has that hideous chain POS. Hopefully the original one is still on it now because the chain one detracts from the appearance big time. I like the rest of the car though. Good luck with it...

    Love the flake roof. Drive the wheels off of it!

    Very pretty! I'm working on a similar one right now. I have the same '58 color keyed spinner caps that you have and I'm shooting for a similar stance. I like it!

    Very nice conservative mild custom. I have two 58s - loaded Citation two door hardtop, and a Corsair two door hardtop. Citation is being factory stock, Corsair is about 85% at being a mild custom like your car, but with modern running gear. It's lowered as well. As an Edsel addict, have to say keeping most of their iconic styling is smart. Both of mine get rubber-necked every time they are driven. Nice work.

  15. I did the steering wheel over in my Ford, widened the cracks with a file and filled with PC7 epoxy. Dries hard, sands well. Driving it over a year and it still looks good.
