They definitely dont looks as good as yours, Al. Having to make them go between the stock frame rails called for alot of extra cutting...not as pretty.(and this is the prettiest side..lol)

Thanks Mopowers! But...I cant take credit for the fab work. They were done by EC1 Racing in Davison, MI. I really dont know how thats done, just know he is pretty gifted with a torch.
