The lighting in the building was not on & even then I couldn't get positioned to get a good shot.
I'll let Kyle get it prettied up somewhat before any I post more pics.....maybe even get some more body work on.

The car is coming along. Should be back at home next week......semi-shiney.
I think it needs a month or so to harden before a final buff.

The fella's name is Kile Effert (not sure of the spelling). He trying to get a auto paint bidness going. He did the job for $7K and it took 2 months. He did a good job on the body work (just a bit needed) and paint. The quarter windows install is kinda shaky. Dunno if that was a lousy kit or opperator error.....I'll fix that next winter.
Gimme a PM & I'll supply a phone number.

They don't fit very well from all that I've read on it. I just pulled the trigger on buying a set for mine.

It's more of a pain in the #$$ than you would think. I am installing mine now. Just be prepared to take your time and trim everything to fit slowly. I also recommend using tape on both the trim and the paint while test fitting. The moldings are sharp and will ruin paint with just one sneeze.

i also recommend putting some bedding and glazing compound around the windows before you finally pop fivet them in just to help seal them up a little better.
