Re: 68 standard, restromod driver?

This is true and when it comes to being able to visually see progress. Whats challenging is the nitty gritty grind of the small stuff when you dont get to visually see much improvement over time

Re: 69 Custom Grille Replacement Project

Nice work! I think going back to the factory grille and trim is the right move.

I do like the carbon touch and matte finish on the cat on the emblem! I left mine off since I thought it cluttered up my grille, but that idea kinda makes me want try it.
