    Oh man the whole thing is a mess. I will be by this afternoon to get rid of the whole thing for you!!!

    I too think they are a tad big but it is your car and if you like them that really is all that matters.

    I agree, I'm not a big fan of the Moon Tank either. For the BIG headlights to work, you need to loose it. Otherwise, I'd say go with something smaller. Right now, the front end is just "too busy."

    Now, after all the opinions, what do you like? That's ultimately the bottom line here. It's your roadster.

    I think your headed the right way with it just need to change location of the lights. I think these are what your going for and it will be killer. Love to see different angels of the car also.

  9. Looks pretty bug eyed to me. Maybe in a front 3/4 I could get a better perspective.

    I'm sort of going through this right now with my 32. Except my car will be traditional full fendered hot rod, so I'm very interested in the feed back. But they do look big to me but it's your ride and when you push the window for a different look it may take a while after you keep looking at before you really know if they're right for you. Just another 2 cents worth and after a while you'll be more confused, sit down with a beer and keep lookin at her.

    Bob,
    I changed my mind!!!,...... I agree with the others, they are way too big for your car. So I want to help you out here. sell them to me, and you can buy you a set of the same lights everyone else is running, And I will put these big ugly lights on my next 32 build. Hell it will make it easier to find my car in the crowd anyhow, As I get tired of when I get ready to leave I end up getting in the wrong car, because every deuce there looks the same. ........Hell at the last big show I went too 3 guys had to check their serial numbers on the frame to make sure they were taking home the same car they brought......HA HA LOL

    For me it's not the lights as much as it is the tank.

  21. I,m liking down low and tight. Its your car do what you want. No matter what do someone will not like it. Mine has no fenders and people say I don't like it without fenders. Well I do.
