Paul, i'm sure that you already know, but just in case you'll need to change the strike for the doors. Also, enjoy the new doors.

Made a Photoshop mock up of Gold Wheels to my RRC

I have my latest project which is my 1995 SWB RRC and I have a quart of BBS Gold paint from my 1978 BMW 635csi wheels project. I am tempted to paint my rostyle wheel BBS gold. I figure its only paint and I can always go alpine white or dark gray should gold go out of style. I kinda dig the combination and I think I can only pull off this look with steel wheels. I have a set of 235/85/16's BFGs All Terrain so I will have a skinny look. I already have a set of white Restyles on my 1988 40th Anniversary RRC lets see if the purist don't end up rock pounding me. What are your guy's thoughts...... too "FootBaller" of a look?

Why would you put Rostyle wheels on a '95 RRC?

I am building this Retro Grille that has the Vertical Grilles for a that vintage 70's look.

Fitted pioneer kit. Needs some paint, stain, and tweaks but functional.

Hoop Foam Repair

Attempted to repair the rubber/foam on the C-Hoop. Looks like previous owner was careless with fiberglass top fitting and removal. I probably should have spent more time getting the texture to match but figure I can always go back and touch up if it holds. Been on about a month now. Used a combination of gasket maker and rubber spray.

Hells bells. I was ready to order some Td5 hinges but wasn't sure on strikers. Do you know the part number or description?

Thanks,

Paul.

LED headlights

Changed to LED headlights. Much better and straight up bolt in swap. Got them on Amazon- best price I have seen, One had lens fall off out of the box, but seller is sending me a new one. In the mean time a bit o JB seems to be doing the trick
