What a sleeper! I like the colour alot. You should buy another set of stockies & get them widened to like 8" then it'd look tough

it makes a big difference....took a fair while to get it how i wanted it...welded in plates to hide to holes, cut off all the lips on the firewall which you will notice from the before and after pic, boxed up the rails etc
