Nice! I love Elks just make sure your not doing a fast left turn and blow a lower radiator hose and spinout. My buddy did that in a '69 :lol: Fun ride! I like the car and the color combo

I gotta ask why? I mean on a Hot Wheels or a full on custom, OK, but on something that is a believable model/streeter? I just don't get it. What am I missing? I've never seen blue lights, only blue dots, and not on headlights. Please elaborate.

Hey, I’m all about building for yourself, read my sig line…

But those HID lights are not blue. The have a blue cast when illuminated, but when off, pretty much the same as “regular†lights.

Thanks for the explanation. As long as you are happy with it that’s all that matters.

Yep your correct about the HIDs...

This build was a rainy weekend quickie to get building again..nothing fancy..playing with some paint and tape.

Just got some "NEW & IMPROVED " BMF so I may do this one..gotta check out the foil first.

Most all of my builds have a drop of clear blue in the bucket and I use future to install the lenses

and I flew through this one..cool.gif

You're really dating yourself with the "not Summers" comment, too. :lol:

I always think of the Sox & Martin cars when I see blue tinted headlamps, but to each their own. :D
