    That would be hard to beat! Go for it!
    Same with the wheel lips.

    "Casual Custom"...no more!

    Those tail lights are a great score!
    I havent seen much of them for sale.I think rare tail lights will make the kustom treatment more unique,than they would with something more common ones.

    I think if like them better if you shave the seams on the fender. Also yes on the lip on the front fenders they look awesome.

    Thanks guys. After consulting the King I have decided to go a slightly different route with the tail lights. Much like Chuck Dewitt's.

    Also maybe I'd like the meteor tail lights better if you didn't use the bezels.

    No T, I am leaving The Black C at home next weekend. I spent too much on tail lights. Lol long story short I thought I lost a bid on the great ones so I bought all the crapier ones as well. Turns out I did win so now I am the proud owner of way too many 53/54 pontiac tail lights and low on car cash. BRENTS car will be there though.

    Found these NOS glowbrite lenses at the Relix Riot swap area. I'm not usually a blue dot guy but these are kind of cool. I am going to start welding tomorrow. image.jpg

    I've been following this build. Did you have it at Relix? Seems I would have caught it but then again I am on a lot of meds. lol

    In either case, I really like it. Those taillights will look rad on there.

    Thanks, it was supposed to be at Relix but I ran out of time and money getting it ready. The blue vert belonging to BRENT on the previous page was there in my place.

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg I managed to get a little done before dinner. I will get the right one in place before I do any sheet metal work so that I can be sure they are the same.

    On the days I'm off I try to slip out to the garage with the baby monitor while my boy takes his naps. An hour here and and hour there.

    Thanks, the thing about Chucks car is that it is one of the few cars that has a completely different shaped tail light yet retains and amplifies the existing windsplts.

    They look great on Chevys, remember Dennis McPhails. That was one of the first things he did before his big road trip and it looks killer.
