    Although not totally straight, My car has made improvements.. Still need to lose the wheels and tires. Actually this is only a temporary rattle can job. the "real" paint job comes in a few weeks. This is just so I can show my face at the Hoe Down on September 14th. Also leaving are the pipes in favor of lakes style. Don't think I have enough time to finish them before the show...

    I think some beefier head lights would toughen up the front end a bit. Were you planning on changing them?

    Looks good so far.

    Oh yeah..I'm planning on changing alot more, including the headlights. Larger and lower is the way I'm going. This was just what I got done on Labor Day weekend. Ran out of time and money as usual. At least it aint yellow any more! those Scallops had to die as well...

    Me likes it Spikey. Leave it just so, the wheels and tires rock, they're a refreshing change from red wheels and whitewalls. I love it, just call it done and enjoy it.


    It's wicked. I liked your sedan better, whooops shouldn't have said that!

    I second what Nads said--the wheels and tires lend kind of a badass street tuff look to it. Drop the headlights and call it a day.

    I love it man, i think the tires in back are a bit wide though. And i think your right about the pipes. Other than that, IT IS BEAUTIFULL!
     
  16. I like it just the way it is. Your paint job looks great.
    Love the red firewall too.
    I'm with the idea of driving the hell out of it and screw with it along and along as the spirit moves you.
    Nice car.

    YOUR ride has charactor, and that is what makes it kwuoool.
    It's yours, and you can do "Whatever Blows Yer Skirt Up" to it. For what it's worth, I like it the way it is.....

    Nads- I hear ya man..I loved that C-Dan too. But I just gotta own a five-winder before I kick off. I'm sure the guy I traded with will make it gay though. Last I saw it, he had added stickers and stuffed animals. wish I could have both cars, but theres only room for one car and three bikes in my garage. I have a million pictures of the C-Dan. One is a huge poster that hangs above my computer. All I have to do is look up and there it is.. large as life!

    WOW, what a difference! I like it. It kinda has a that sixtys hotrod look now instead of the "other" look it had when you got it. I think that it would be safe to say that you de-mullet-ized it! [​IMG]

    Rickyracer- Thats a 6" chop. A bit much I'ld say..PLUS its channeled 4". I'm 6'-1" Basically my knees are hugging the steering wheel. I look out the small side window. Long trips? Hmmm...better get back to me on that one. But hey..my back is still in great shape so I'll drive it till I can't.

    I'd say it ain't gay at all anymore Spike.

    Stuffed animals in your old Cdan?

    That SOB should be shot! [​IMG]
     
  22. Those headlights are both too small and way too high.

    I guess you feel the same way, I ought to read further... duh.

    Nice Spike. I think it looks bitchin.' Now all you need to do is leave the windows down for a few weeks to let all the gayness escape. Seriously though, I dig it. Maybe I will catch you at the hoe-down.

    Hey 46Mopar- Haven't found anything yet. well, I have, but nothing that I can afford or go after right now. May find something at the Hoe Down. '34 lights sound bitchin though. whats he gotta get for a set?

    -Link-... Looks like Rod-N-Keister has to find a new cover car. Once I change a few more things the GAY demons will be chased from it entirely. What do ya mean "I MIGHT see you at the Hoe Down"? Be there or be square man. I'm even bringing the missus and "Tack". They can run the CKD booth while I take pics and such. Theres a river close by so Tack can get muddy....

    I think the PO-Leece will LOVE it! Probably pull me over and ask for my autograph every chance they get. But first they have to get past the stealth bomber paint that absorbs all radar and the angled chopped roof that also acts as a radar deterent. PLUS..nothing flashy anymore to catch thier eye.
