Sh*ts looking tight, Bro!! Can't wait for the updates!

The cat's eyes are working very well in there. Once preliminary grafted, it should speak to you even more in what to do with the area below. I can't see leaving that area blank. Something must go there. Off the top? A much smaller lamp/turn indicator perhaps? Sightly frenched maybe? We'll see.

Tail lights

I really like Streetfame's Bently-look rear on this car, but I still keep seeing 1970 Eldorado tail lights on it... close to the originals but still custom looking. However, I bow to the masters who have better eyes for the lines... just throwing out food to stimulate the juices

funny you mention that loki...i keep thinking both 50s 60s 70s buick and caddy on the tail...but i think they are too "square" and hard edge for the smooth flow that wanted

btw everyone..the shop is snowed in...4 ft of snow power was out for a few days too..aint no getting at her or my lloyd

Be sure to keep in touch w/ Larry so he doesn't arrive in the middle of a blizzard.

I didn't realise that Randy had passed - sad to hear.

well..sadly..ive had to take inventory on all my projects and see what i can in reality ever finish..randys passing opened my eyes as to realizing i cant finish everything...and this ole girl..since i got it from randy in passing...needs to find a new home....if anyone can help point me in a direction of what i should be looking at to sell her and where to list her please do so....most of the funding will go to g-sprint which i also ended up with..however my wife fell in love with the "cute little sprint" and wants it

the engine and and transaxle are long gone but the rest of her sits..solid and mostly complete

SOLD..and personaly delivered to a guy in seattle...the bonus here was when the guy called..he knew this cars history prior to randy and i getting the car....so randy would be proud of whos care its in now

it likely wont go the direction we would have taken her..but.she will get done regardless
