Thunderbirds are GO!

Finally, I made some progress on the ‘Bird.  Inspired by the beautiful headlight bezels on the ’63 Caddy, I purchased a pair a month ago on eBay.  The idea was to get away from the flat bezels of the stock headlights, and raise the outside edge to get rid of the “droopy” look they had.  A little slicing and dicing and some sheet metal to reshape the fender eyebrow has it all roughed in.

Right side done, left side stock.

I like the new look, how about you?

    Looks good Brian.

    It’s those subtle things that make a car stand out. The ones you have to really look hard to notice.
