hey just thought i would give a pic of my car, soon to come: 5% tint, and hopefully lowering springs. yes that is a dent on the hood, it looks as though someone took a sledge to it but its just that one spot, no creases around it :wierd:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

With no creases it should pop out fairly easily. I'd love to see some other pics of her. It looks like you have a deep lip on your rims...they look good. What color is the interior? smile

Very nice Tyler. I think the five spokes loook good on the riv. Where are you getting the 5% and how much is he charging you? Do they have to remove old tint too? I have to get mine done soon and T-town's not too far. smile

Welcome to the forum Tyler, I like that style of portholes. I've got a set of those too, but haven't put them on yet. I am having some paint work done on my '65 right now'. My oldest daughter lives in Tulsa. It's good to have you here. smile

whadda ya think? next on the agenda: wet sand and buff followed by painting the front bumper and hood. the car has been pre-painted sometime in it's life, but it was never finished, so it is total orange peel. a little 1500 grit should fix that right up. and yes, i'm having a pro do it!!! she's well on her way~!

the green one is a 95 i'm trying to sell, it's not perfect, such as the door panels are loose at the top, and the supercharger makes more than average noise, ( i think it needs oil but havn't had time to check it), and thee are two faded spots in the paint. but everything works. and the body is strait. i'll get some pics on here soon of it. i got it cause i knew a guy who wanted one, but he is broke, so now i have an extra car. lol
