I didn't care for the yellow lenses on my 72 so got another set of red ones to match. I have 4 yellow ones stashed somewhere. Are you going to bag this one?

Wasn't your old truck sitting at like 41" roof height? That was an awesome truck, if you google "Chevy Luv" it always comes up.

Not on this one. This one will be a very basic setup. I really want it to lay flat but don't want to z the frame.
