I hope you didn't take offense at my attempts..
I just thought it be cool to visualize the suggestions some had made.

But, I do like that you stood your ground. You have a vision, and a direction you wanna go... Awesome work man, really...

No sweat man. Suggestions and comments always welcome. I might not agree with them, but all are welcome.

So I did make some progress over the weekend. Nothing really new and exciting, but I did manage to get the new decklid shape for the license light welded in. I did end up cutting out the original decklid underneath it to get a butt weld joint. Worked out good. I know the welds are ugly.....that is what the grinder is for.

I also managed to cut out the original fender vents and tack in a filler panel.
