    I sure do like that custom - less is more . That's why I'm taking that approach to MY (mild) custom build with my Shoebox . I've always liked when people look at a car trying to figure out what's different . Hopefully people will scratch their heads while looking at mine when it's done . In a GOOD way , I mean , lol !!
     
  2. Gotta agree, this was my brothers for awhile. He used to park it at my place and had the lights just sitting there. So one Sunday arvo I decided to fix his blown brakelight globe. Best fix ever... These had the custom Mooneyes Lenses fitted.

    I was aiming for "less is more"- nothing crazy. a mild chop. a few mods, not slammed on the floor, a little shave, etc... it's in the details.

    I like the composition of this photo, both girl and car are clad in white, and their headligts are pointing off in the same direction...

    #3 Jumped out at me too! Can't put my finger on it either. Am I seeing things, or are there a few rows of tasteful louvers in the hood? :D Beautifully done car, for sure. Hoping to pull off this simple elegance with my two hunks.
