    Nice, I like the headlight treatment, and the trunk looks clean that way. When you get the white walls on it will match your dog!

    That's a nice lookin' ride. The peeked headlights are always a nice touch on these cars. It will look even better with the wide whites on it.

    The peaked lights do look very nice on these cars. Sits really nice. I'd get rid of the window sticker and put the factory turn signal lenses back in (you asked).

    Should look really nice with the new wheels and WWW.

    the turn signal lens were taped off and painted like that,their old and dry rotted,I have to replace them anyway,do you think I should go with clear or amber lens and the window sticker I couldnt decide on taking it off or keeping it,its old and faded but i thought looked kind of cool,what does everybody think

    Is that a "one-fifty"? I'm starting to really dig the 54. Makes me want to get one!

    Looks evil. Needs some stripe on it to finish it off. Like the plate are in the decklid. Like the peaks. Don't like the sticker. I like amber signals.

    Nice job. Good looking kids, nice to see them getting their fill of lead paint at an early age from something other than gnawing on the stair railing!

    I've been watching your posts lately and thought I'd give you an "attaboy". Save those pics of the kids helping out because trust me, speaking as a grandpa, those are the best memories. Be sure to give them a hug and while you are at it give em one from and old fart that loves 54's also. When I am gone my grandson gets mine.
     
  16. looking good, ditch the sticker, clear lens.....

    hope to see it around town one of these days

  19. Looks good. Definatly need to chrome the bumpers.Add more grill teeth and chrome the wrap-arounds. Otherwise it just looks like big black brick.
