    Looks way better,can't go wrong with torq-thrust wheels. Were you able to take a couple leaves out of the front spring after changing the headlights?,lol.

    Yes you do! Personally I love the torque thrusts on anything. The smaller headlights are definitely an improvement over the large ones.

    Nice work! Love the torque thrusts. WB69 is right they look great on anything. I don't get the big headlight look and those suckers look like the came off a street light :eek:
     
  10. Hood or no hood, the Torque Thrusts and new stance make a huge difference. The chrome grill and spreader bar are a plus also. Nice job.

    Glad you got rid of the bug eye headlights !

    For those asking (@The37Kid), those big headlights are Lincoln and @Jamoke has them listed here for sale in the Hamb classifieds. I already bought some of the other cool stuff he stripped of the car, can't quite swing the lights. :D

    That’s the great thing about this hobby and for some a life style.The blood sweat and tears that go into these vehicles or simply the personal touches big or small is what makes them a part of our selfs.

    You did a great job changing things. It looks much better now, you gave it your personal touch and that really makes it your car now

    My first thought was there must have been a supermarket Grand Opening.
