        Just for the record, I'd also go black walls out Ray.

        It also appears in the photos that the front bumper should be moved back (approx another inch). This is done so that rear verticle edge of the chrome bumper lines up or matches up with the front fender wheel opening...

                Ray - I had portawalls on my car for quite some time - wide whites without the big price. May be an option rather than buying all new tires. They aren't perfect (flip out at the front when going down the interstate, you usually have to run tubes to get a good seal, and not really designed for use with radials) but maybe it's worth looking in to.

                Flea bay 330442452143, 380196539073 This guy is in Turkey and looks like the one that used to be in Greece so may not be worth the trouble 220623617630. Maybe Discount Tire could order you some?

                The car looks great - I was thinking black wheels but the matching color is nice - sorry - not a fan of white letter tires either. Blackwall or whitewall - and with all that white trim I'd vote for whitewall.

                  Hey Coral, you missed a couple.........look at the two feet under "thunderbird" on the license plate frame :>)

                  To me that beautifully done car really needs white walls, but since yo already have good tires, I'll add my vote for all black.

                          Portawalls

                          "Tweety Bird" would ultimately be complete with Whitewalls as I'm sure Ray knows as well. I was in the same boat as Ray. When I purchased my T.Bird it had near new tires but not Whitewalled. I bought a set of Portawalls but couldn't get them to seat on the Rim as my Rims are chrome & they wouldn't Grip properly. After trying several times we gave up. Actually mine don't look too bad as the Tires are all Black & I have Wires. However they will be changed to Whitewalls down the Road one day.

                            Ray you have outdone yourself and certainly ready for crusin. Definitely whitewalls, as others have said to put the finishing touch on this classic.

                              Yellow Rose, aka "Tweety Bird", is finished! As far as painting goes. See my comments in the web page below. I went by this afternoon to check her out. She looks great to me! Now come some other things that need to be done. Then I can enjoy her more. Here is the web page. Click on that last picture of her on the web page for a much bigger view of her.
