Those flares are definitely taking it to the next level. Nicely done sir.

Now you just need to lose that ugly Eleanor hood and you'll be good to go.

Looking AWESOME! Did you buy flares pre-cut/curved for it and if not how are you getting the right curve to them without an English wheel?

I'm happy I'm not the only one who sees eleanor as a buck tooth bastard child. I love this project I check every day for updates. Looking damn good.

A little late on the update, but she drives around town now. I'm fixing a throttle cable issue and adjusting the shift linkage but its fun and gets a TON of attention.

That's awesome man! I disagree though, keep the hood, it goes well with the flares.

Weíre talking about aesthetics, so itís subjective. Yet somehow, you are still objectively wrong.

I think the eleanor hood fits the car. I dont dislike the one on the sports roof, but I do hate the flares.
