The yellow headlight covers are plastic with no pattern. I sold dozens of them in the past. After looking up the rules in Nebraska, looks like they are legal.......but it does`nt really matter to me, because I don`t drive it at nite any longer.

Bill,
I dig the gt-style rocker trim you have there. Did you form that yourself from bumper trim? Looks cool in conjunction with the gt trim on the bumpers.

Greg.......since the car had stock rocker decos when I did the "GT" thing, rather than fill holes and paint, I just thought the matching GT bumper trim would look good on the rockers. I had a welder do the ends and I filed to shape.....I like the look.

Bil
Looking at the Interior dash in the Center next to the looks like the clock is that an oil PSI gage? and the Red with Black interior is a great combination.
