Well, as of now the po had it set up with a led light in the back window and 2 lights that he mounted in the back of the rear bumper which he cut out for lights (you can kinda see them on each side of the license plate on the bumper. Its a different look ... Really like the ribbed billet style bumpers instead of whats on there. Not sure what im going to do to change it up.

been working my ass off getting this thing straightened out. Redid abunch of wiring and cleaned it up and taking off the bumpers and just guna probably get bumper bars. Putting taillight back on the fenders but not the 68-70 kind the earlier ones that are small maybe even the snow flake ones. The interior is early style so why not bring some of that on the outside of the car here and there... Looking for wheels now... Would like chrome this time. Oh well back to work :D !

One note.

My biggest pet peve in the entire world are snow flakes mounted too high. Take note of some original pics to see where to put em.
