I was going to suggest you just make a new one.

BUT.

It's your thread..... we don't want to see other people's rides this time.

this is what i have so far.

Its all mostly small stuff till my return comes in.

yes that is a hood scoop that does nothing at all. in my case it looks tacky.

euro tails with aftermarket plate. (the factory ones corroded)

my salty black factory wheels.

And the engine bay. its not much but it will get there once i reduild the head.
