I got to say that really looks good.

I hate the flames though. I think it would look great with some kind of chrome grill work inserted into the front indent. Thin rods going up and down like an early ford grill.

nice.

the flames or going the way of the dodo sorry i should have mentioned it at some point im thinking of doing an O/D green flat paintjob wiht some things remenicent of vietnam paint schemes im thinking about doing the oldschool fighter mouth where the fenders used to be im tossing around the idea of wether or not to remove the rears as well but im trying to keep it a baja as well as a volksrod i have a +8 wider beam for the front i just have to get the tie rods ect. and i want to get the 3+3 trailing arms for the rear but im not lifting it at all kinda giving the clearance i need for the beach but the wide stance i like of a lowered car

Florida is one of the few remaining Free states. by that I mean we do not over regulate peoples freedom here. We have the right to drive cars without annoying inspections or a list of un-allowable modifications..... as long as you have lights and some form of windshield+wipers your good to go.
We also have the right to defend ourselves, own guns, not be in a union, run gas powered lawnmowers etc.

i liked the flamejob but paint ideas you have sound awesome. it would look good in military colors! you guys dont even have to worry bout inspection? that rips! the little baja fenders look good on the rods to me.and the bumper thing is gonna be bad as well, i would definitely keep it. i have been fantasizing bout the scoop on this ride, and it would compliment your hood style. i was thinking the license housing off of a 67 up would be a good start. (yes, my fantasies consist of car parts. dont everyones)
