So Far, Sooooooo Good!

Finally getting her back together again, havn't worked on the front lights yet, but the rears will be fine as is for awhile. I ended up using this door seal material for fender beading. It's non-porous and fireproof, as well as being very light and white!







I ended up cutting a notch out of the right light, it was rusted so don't get too mad at me. It allows for a good license plate mounting point as well as a license plate light all in one. You can see the LED lights I shoved in there, they were really high end lights I got from Wal-Mart!!!











Overall I'm really happy with how she's turning out, more pics to come.

Jason

SuhWEET! Really looks good Jason!

I am a little concerned about the fire-resistant fender beading?!? What are you preparing for?

LOL! I hope nothing, but for example the exaust tips lie only about an inch away from the start of the fender beading on the rear fenders, then again I guess the fiberglass could go up in flames too!!!

Thanks for the comments guys, hope to have it more complete and get some better pictures taken this weekend.
