    Like it! like the stance, the sport panels look good as dose the mustang power window switches (I used 86 Bronco on my 73) 72 buckets look better than the 74 with headrests, and I LOVE the "BUMPER TUCK" and shaved doors, Is that Zolotone on the inner fenders and firewall?

    +++++++++++++++++

    Wait a minute here ... you also said on the other thread about the Montchero that you thought it was sitting perfect, but it's a good 6" higher than this car.

    @74Ranchito -- your car looks great. What are the two light areas at either side of your grill?

    Your car rocks. Agree the stance is perfect and the shaved doors really finish the act. My 78 is monochrome black and you have tipped me to shaving the doors. If I might ask, what are you using for door solenoids?

    Very cool ride!!! I really like your interior the sport door panels with power windows (very nice). I like the sliver/w black grill and the painted bumpers look good with that set up as well. I get some greif here because my rancheros (74 and 79) both sit up much higher that stock. I was going for a certain look and I got it. Your cars stance and look do that car proud as well. take care Dan the rancher man.
