BLarson, sorry, here's some shots of the whole car

In Front of a local landmark



From behind near another historic building


And showing my "lunchbox delete" (Just painted it flat black)


Still missing painted calipers but here's the side view


Thanks to many members here who've done most of these mods first,
I just plan to have my set be a little different than those I imitate.
(Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery> eh?)

Now for a nice MN Winter...

Can you take a truly side pic? Not at an angle, straight on sideways and one of the lip directly from side???

This may be a stupid question, but I don't want to make a stupid mistake. Lol.
I want to paint my lunchbox flat black, is there a certain type or brand of paint to use? Or not use? Never painted anything exhaust related before and don't want to mess anything up.

Thanks!

I used standard rustoleum flat black. but did wipe the lunchbox down with a towel and then hit it with some sandpaper before painting. Paint has stuck good,

Looks great, though!

EDIT: Do you guys think cars with smoked tail lights get rear ended more often?
I'm curious as to how bad his tail lights reduce visibility I always thought it looked cool but was always concerned about people being able to see the tail lights.
