    seeing those huge openings for the headlights reminds me how I would like to modify my 48 pontiac with Indian motorcycle teardrop headlights.

    Well they aren't done yet, also still working on the rear on a bit, I talked to another wheel vendor yesterday so I am going to double check measurements and hopefully put an order in next week. Wheel vintiques has only wasted my time.

    So after trying to get wheels made from wheel vintiques since the end of February I finally gave up and found the wheel smith, called them last week, wheels where made and here they are.
    Bumpers are about ready to go to chrome.

    ...doesn't exactly say much for Wheel Vintiques. But says a lot for your wheel smith.
    Those wheels will look bloody gorgeous.

    Ditto on love the wheels! Sure sounds like one company's effort is better than another's! I also like the rear bumper filler, I would like to do something like that to Rita but I probably never will. I'm anxious to see what your bumpers will look like with some comb on them!

    Was able to get the bumpers and hood ornament stuff to the chromer, Ogden Chrome quoted us an insane amount so we ended up taking it to Salt Lake Chrome instead. I need to start making some final decisions on paint color and I think I will just have someone powder coat the wheels. Still so much to do.

    Had another previous owners fiberglass art project I cleared out today on the cowl, they plugged it up with fiberglass and mud. We'll get that fixed right.

    Rolled her outside for a breath of fresh air so we could pull the bed and rear fenders off and work on those separate while doing some cab stuff so maybe I can get that blasted soon?
