When i try stuff like this, i store it in the box and never go back to it. They end up on a hopes and dreams graveyard. Good job

Don't know if you want a more stock looking bumper ,but if I remember I think the one from the monogram Caddy conv. fits right on this kit.

Nice direction on this one. I've been wanting to get another ecto for a hot rod hearse ever since I built the polar lights kit. Does this kit come with the doors n hood opened up or is that your handiwork? And how do you post pics from your cell phone? I have an iPhone but haven't been able to figure that one out yet. Keep it coming

I opened the doors and hood. the car is a complete curbside with no chassis, interior, or engine detail n fact there is no motor at all. I have an android phone and downloaded the photobucket app. its got the img codes on it and i just copy and paste them on the site. time consuming, but it works



Update:
Body work almost done:

this side needs more work:
