  11. Now that's an interesting turn of events. What's the story?
     
  12. How did you lower it? Airbags? I've got a coupe I'll be lowering eventually.

    Try to do something on it every day no matter how small. Took me almost four years to get mine where it's at now. Their never ever completely finished but don't give up. Looks like you have a good start.

    I found the one but the ring is cracked if you want it I’ll give it to you. I’ll mail it in a flat rate box IMG_5060.JPG IMG_5061.JPG

    I've got a nice set of those Buick headlights like the top bezel in your pic... $250.00 for the set + shipping if you're interested ?
