    Eryk, you got a "Bandwidth exceeded" message from photobucket instead of a picture ... again! Man you must be paying big bucks for that service.

    tube grills are super slick. Ive always wanted a car I could do one one, no such luck, but one day. That blue Chrysler with the flames is awesome.

    Im pretty sure that JW was the ones who did the tube grill on Conrads "Blue Mambo". Actually I think his car is in the companys magazine ad. His grill looks top notch.

    I love the inner lights eliminated on Galaxies. The tube grill/single headlight is so clean. Very cool!

    speaking of grills.. i need info/feedback on an idea i have for my grand prix. I was thinking and thinking and eventually had the idea of doing a similar phantom headlight treatment on my grand prix something similiar to a 64 riviera.. any ideas? naturally i was thinking of such things because i wanted to compliment a tube grill, but the headlights being stacked and seperate made it a bit difficult in terms of inspiration. any suggestions or feedback?

    You could always recess the headlights then build grilles to cover them that match whatever it is you do for the actual grille. Horizontal bars of course. Vertical would look goofy on that car.

    naturally horizontal bars. i didnt exactly mean to use the riv headlight covers, but rather the notion of said covers. id imagine anything i do will be a one-off sharing likeness of the riv headlight covers... i was more looking for input if it would look good or if im just nutzo. just the same, im seriously contemplating the possibilities.

    @bob_o ill send you a picture of the grill influence by you...
