Anyone done it on a Fleetwood? Ive seen it done on the wagons and some of the other B bodies in black and it looks pretty good. Not sure how it would look on a FWB though.

I dont have any pics off hand, but I have seen lowriders with them painted, and some with murals. It looks bad in my opinion because of the of the odd shaped opening the seat belts come out of.

oh, ok. I think it looks good on that car. On layitlow.com there is a guy who makes engraved cover plates for the b-pillars, but it's not my style.

Got one of those wide rolls of electrical tape? 4 inch, I think. Maybe it was 3. Works perfect. I did one out of curiosity years ago figuring if I liked it I'd take it off and do it right. Hell, it stayed there the rest of the time I owned the car and nobody ever knew the difference. Almost the best 60 cents I ever spent.

i dont think anyone makes the extended skirts anymore. someone made a batch many years ago and theres still a few around but nobody that I know of on layitlow makes them anymore. Kind of difficult since its welding thin stainless. They fit stock rims easy, the china deep dish wire wheels would rub though, daytons wouldnt.

i have the stainless pillar trim for the outside, the 6 piece set, i like em. Dont get the plastic ones, go stainless if anyones into that

Yours look good! It looks a lot better with the back pillar done too and the engraving is a little too busy for me. I would have mine just like yours, do they make a sent for the triangles on the 93-94 cars?

theres a guy on layitlow.com that can make them for you. I got my kit on ebay, 6 piece stainless for around $40.

That's cheap I've only seen them for 80 something on there. How much does the guy on layitlow charge for the triangle pieces?

Plasti Dip?

Don't know if I'm allowed to post here because I don't own a Fleetwood... :p

Have you though about trying Plasti Dip?

I just finished up my mirrors, B, and C pillars. Subtle change, looks nice...

I don't understand the plasti dip fad. It won't hold up. Just use flat paint, or use the color of your choice and flat clear.

Are you saying the fad won't last (they never do), or the durability of PlastiDip?

Where are you located?
