This is one very good lookin Edsel! I'm not big fan of continental kits and fender skirts but some how those fits to this one very good. Engine details looks very good and paint job is very good also. Nice Job!

Wow that is Nice! Excellent paint and finishing, I like the engine compartment too, fantastic detailing. Those side pipes fit perfectly on this one. Maybe the Fender Skirts and Continental Kit would be items I left off if it was mine, but otherwise it's just perfect. Great Job!

Love this one! I'm working on a not-so-mild custom Edsel myself. Love that grille treatment.

Thanks again to everyone for all your kind comments and encouraging words. At the rate that I've been able to knock out my finished builds lately, I should have the '58 Caddy Eldo done in a couple of weeks.

I'm glad you are on a '58 kick Richard..
lots of work coming out of your bench because of that.
Thanks for sharing your work and tips.
Now for my question..where/who has those chrome bullets.

The car looks good with the subble custom touches, they are the kind of customizing I like, nothing radical, and irreversible, and even tough, still capable of individualizing the car, and make it unique.
The color is also a very nice choice, and even looks like a original Ford color from newer Lincolns a Thunderbirds.

Thanks again to everyone for all of your encouraging words.
James, I've had those little chrome bullets in my parts stash for a long time, but I don't remember what kit they came out of. I wish I had a bunch more of them.

Thank you very much Grant. Yep, the fleet of '58's is growing. I'm working on the '58 Eldo right now. Hope to have some WIP pics of that up shortly.
