The first thing I noticed was how clean, smooth and straight that looks without all the trim. Very, very nice. To me it really brings out the form of the body not to have all the add ons interrupting the shape.

Nice job.

Your body man sure had his work cut out for him - but what a top job he did!!

A great looking car Alistair - like others I have preferences like glossy paint instead of suede however your car = your choice eh?

Love the stance too!

Alistair, thanks for posting those pix! You know how we love to see what others have gone through with their Tbirds. You have taken a car that was in pretty bad shape externally and created a thing of beauty with it. It is great that the interior and glass are in great shape. If you were to invite the previous owner to see his old Tbird, he probably would not know he was looking at her.

Thanks Ray. If I did that though, he'd probably want to have me executed... (:

Looking at all the job you have done, I can only say that this bird found the right owner.
But custom or not, I would have the Thunderbird emblems on anyway, and leave the trim, as I just like that logo so much, and hey, they are Custom as they are anyway in the first place.... But thatīs me
And you welder is one skilled guy.
