Does that include me? Someone who grew up in Venice Beach wears girls jeans daily and was a submariner for 8 years... Im like one package of eye-liner away from being full homo.

I think when youre done working on the car, you should leave the fender flares taped on like that... would be epic. Youve done enough welding everywhere else; time for some speed tape!

Is this just going to be a lawn ornament?
Is it going to be driven ever again?
:o :o :lol:
It'll be cool either way

I'm going to clear coat everything again ... I want the flares removable,,, but everything is so weak without any fender arches


Are you going to have the rear door functional?

yes

I want to buy this car!

NO!!!!!

I'm not going to say this looks bad, because it doesn't. It actually looks pretty good. But I still don't agree with it. Please prove me wrong. I would like to be wrong in this instance.


It's WAY past looking good ever again .... .. :lol: ... I REALLY wish I had just fixed the rust under the back seat and kept her driving

Bump for some updates....
(Hope your back is feeling better)


Meh,,, not really .... at least Ruby rolls .... :lol: .... she's so heavy with the doors on .... :rofl:

The passenger side flares off Lowla were done in the 1980's and resemble BRE style bubble flares .. .. I'm going to re-shape them to fit higher above the body line
