    Amen Bill! I agree 100% It is sad to see a high quality Kustoms and they use the cheap street rodded head light rings. Roger is right that Spence is making good quality head light frenching kits. Very kool affordable alternative.

    I enjoyed your rant, can't wait for the next one.... Happy Trails, Mick

    Exactly! Modifications are supposed to make the car look better, not just different.

    Cool video you posted @straykatkustoms Is it possible that at 1:51 thru 2:09 in the video the red chopped Merc is the same one that participated in your Lead Ain't Dead show? Came in all the way from Pennsylvania.

    Its next to a humpback Dodge panel truck in the video. Only able to see the front for a split second at time stamp :19, but horizontal grill bars make me wonder if it is.

    That was footage I took. Sorry about the quality as it was on cine film, rather than Video. Hence my friend put a music soundtrack to it as it was silent originally. Thanks for posting it.
