    Now that's a perfect custom!!! Great looking car and I love the rear treatment as a whole from the Lincoln lights, dodge bumper to kaiser overrider. Great example!

    All class and just what a custom should be. Improved but not having an identity crisis.

    That car is one of those "the more you look the more you see" customs but no one modification overpowers the car.
     
  7. pure class with a touch of perfection

    Love the "how-to" pics. Making do with what you have. It seems crude by today's standards, but it still gets the job done! This is a simple, clean custom that yields a great result. Complimentation is the word of the day, Cat

    I gotta say the tool he is using there is actually pretty damn efficient,

    I have used similar tools for panel removal at junk yards with pretty stellar results.

    of course I have also used a flat blade and a chisel. works in a pinch but kindly messy!


     
  18. great stuff right there. just the way a custom should look
