    Bracket looks nice.
    Hight looks fine.
    Lamp looks to big.

    2 of 3 is good enough.
    If you like them, go for it, but I would get some smaller ones.
     
  4. I like your build, I for one love big headlights and girls with those big glasses. but that's just me. I used 34 dodge headlights. 028.jpg

    Looks good. Every time I see "rams horn" headers on a build, it makes me reconsider the lake headers I have planned for my build.

    One big question for you; do you cut, grind and weld that close to your cars? I get evil ticks and sweaty palms by the mere thought of spark flying in that room!

    Keep at it, lad!

    Ha. After doing that back window, the cars where so dirty and covered in crap. I learned my lesson. They get backed out now.

    These are just the stock ram manifolds. But I'd love to have the good ones. I really like a simple look on certain stuff
