I like the color and what he was trying to do with it. Don't like the front. It looks like it has an overbite and the license plate recess bugs me because it's off-center.

I like what he did with the interior myself. Although the headliner has some "dings" in it- maybe the underlayment he used is prone to that, like styrofam?  Or maybe it's just weird stretchmarks near the seems?

Lacks the same overall "vision" in the engine bay, which needs a bunch of work.  I don't care for the nose either although with a little tweaking the grille theme could be cool. Going to be hard to find the right buyer I think.

Oh & the offset plate recesses are not my cup of tea either, but yes- to each his own.

Needs some work. fill in the recess on the front bumper and I think that would be ok. The headliner did need a little attention. Don't like the bed cover. I see what he was going for, but it looks like it would not last too long in the rain. Of course I think cars are meant to be driven in all kinds of weather. Mine will definitely see snow if it flies.

I'm sure it turns heads.  Just not for the right reason.

I think this much and this type of customization comes from not being able to find the right parts, or not putting the effort into finding the right parts.

Correct me if I'm wrong but there is trim missing from around the head liner, no dome light and probably many other little details that can't be seen.

I'm sure there was a lot of effort put into it, and I like the door panels and the colour.

As for selling it, like my accountant says "If you've got a buyer for your antique that's great!  If you don't, then it's just really old."

Those are addons like the chrome "eye lids". They are usually only seen on 50's type customs.

The color is not what I would choose, but that's a matter of taste.  And I agree that the front license cavity ruins the front facia, but otherwise I like the front.  He got a bit carried away with the orange color IMO. I borders on being a bit gaudy IMO. I can sure see a lot of work put into building it. I'm trying to visualize how it would look in a different color.....
