    I know I should do what pleases me but also respect the opinions of other hot rodders. What do you think-should I remove the visor for more of a hot rod look? Appreciate your inputs. Steve

    The visor looks fits the look of the car. Removal will give more of the 'hot rod' look. Personally, I'd leave the visor on.

    for the hot rod look take the visor to the next swap meet
    and loose the side pipes (of course in my opinion )

    I like hot rods and I like "Bombs". I'd put it on or off, depending on my mood. It would be off today.

    Leave the visor on if you want to be different.
     
  10. Everything is subjective,,personally I'm not a fan of visors or side pipes but it ain't my car. HRP

    Hot Rod or not, keep the visor. It adds that little bit of nostalgia that makes your car unique from the rest of the Street Rods out there.

    Just my opinion, but its a very nice ride.

    I love a visor. It gives it a chopped look from the front. It gives it character from the side, and I like the way it looks from the seat.

    Your gonna get a 50/50 response on this. You either like-um or not.

    Nice ride, but my vote says "Get rid of the Visor". But, it's your car, not mine.

    Not a fan, takes away from the great smooth lines of that coupe, IMO.
     
  16. Your name's on the pink slip so do what you want.
    I like the visor. I'd lose the lake pipes as well.

    I'd pull the non-functional dummy spots and lakes (if they aren't hooked up) first.

    But yeah, leave the accessory that actually does something!!
     
  19. my 2 cents, I would lose the visor for sure, the lakes pipes and the spots ??? not sure about...
    hey it's your ride, If you like it...leave it alone.. Cheers Happy 4th !

    Just going with the theme of items on the car which look like they done well. Do more work and DROP THE TAIL. Doesn't work as is. Good luck.

    Visor makes it more low-rider, I would take it off for hot rod!
