Calling this one done. Been a long ride and I'm happy with the result. Here it is, warts and all.
 

I started with this old ebay built up. Ended up with this.I had more before shots but they are missing from Fotki at this time.

N-I-C-E. These old annuals always look great built up, and bonus points for saving a shabby older builtup.

Wow! One of the best lookin Starliners what I've seen yet! Color is perfect and like that style a lot. It looks mild custom but at same time it looks street machine. Very Nice Job!

Great build Ron!  Nice body work, that roof looks like it was born there, and those tail lights look awesome!  Very Kool Kustom.  B)
