I thought you black housed your headlights?? I think it'd look much better with that done. Or even a light smoking of the lense. Truck looks soooo good man. Now go work on the neon!!

PS - do you actually drive the truck??

The tank is about 1/4" off the ground so that's why it got a hole. One we take a few inches off the bottom it won't be an issue
