I painted it originally in the garage which wasn't the best idea only wearing crappy painters masks and didn't mix it correctly either so it was laying WAY to thick, since then I have been reading up so hopefully it will turn out alot better this time.
I'm trying to figure out how to do fiber glass work, never have done that, kinda want to do my dash and build a rear dash that will house my subs.

Many thanks everyone, I'm going to be picking up those rear fender " flares " or whatever they are, just started going back through everything again and trying to smooth out those dimples and high spots.
Thanks REV for the next idea on the list!
I also started the hunt for a SS or civilian w/ disc rear end to get rid of the snubby 9C1 to clean it up some more!!!! I'll post pics up as soon as I can

The front part of the fender looks wrong. There needs to be a curve that matches the headlight lenses.
You will need to fabricate some metal until you get a piece that fits better.

What are you going to do for front corner reflectors?
I'm actually trying to find a different set of head lights lenses and sinking them back just a touch, I realized that once it was to late and really don't want to start over on that.
As for the front corner reflectors I don't need them in Az, legally all I need is one brake light, and one head light...... Az is great for doing mods, only bad part is that I'm going to be moving to Pittsburgh in March so I have a good feeling i'll be pulled over alot until I figure out everything there.
Headlights and Tail lights are getting smoked to a satin black look.
As for the rain gutter I need to go fill the tank again before I do that

Um, isn't illegal in your state to remove the side marker lights?

I know it is in mine.
I don't know why people love to do this. I think it looks terrible, but you know what they say about opinions...

Great job on everything else though.
