    It is a street car, and will see some street miles. Planning on doing the upcoming power tour, and Hot Rod Drag Week!

            Dipping the trim with the carbon fiber look could be cool, plus a lot cheaper to do. You can always reverse that later on if you decide you want chrome and polished stainless. Theres people here that redo that type of stuff.

            I really dig the look of the rear wheel openings. It looks great as is, but with paint it'll be amazing.

              That’s exactly what I was thinking. Also, it’d be a bit different

              Yeah, that looks pretty good. Something similar, would be cool.

              Should be a pretty solid motor. There are guys pushing almost 2,000whp in similar set ups

                I love your build so far! The rear wheel wells look great. Back in the day, my buddy and I did the same thing to a 65 Valiant drag car we built. We used front fenders from a 64 Valiant parts car to make them, and did the L to R, R to L swap the same as you did. Your trim on the tops of the quarters, and your wheel well trim is stainless, and should polish up nicely. Find you some front trim from a 66 Cuda to make new rears if you haven't done so already. The tail light housings are pot metal, and there's not much help for them other than rechroming. Your headlight rings are aluminum, and usually have had the hell beat out of them. I got lucky and stumbled into some nice ones for dirt cheap at The Mopar Nationals, and will just have to polish them. Laysons sells them, but they are as expensive as you would expect them to be for a low volume seller item like that. Keep up the good work, and welcome to FABO. :)

                      I got a set of Valiant spears for the rear bumper caps if you want them, one has a hairline crack in it but if your going to carbon fiber wrap them, they would look fine, black CF on white back there may be a nice touch to soften that body line. Would be nice to donate something that the world's gonna see on a stage someday! Unknown car in pic to show rear spears.
