To top things off you cant go wrong with some universal buick style portholes for the fenders, chrome spinner wheel covers, and a spoiler...:laugh:I remember those 3-spoke wheels on that desert runner looked so futuristic and badass when I first saw them. They looked cool on the Pathfinders of the time too.
PS: Nothing matches chrome fender trim like some chrome curb feelers.
You can get that wood from JC Whitney!Definitely an acquired taste. I remember it used to be an option on a lot of older cars. It is definitely out of style nowadays, but I would like to go a bit retro with my exterior mods. Now, just gotta find some wood panels....
Tried to turn it in to a Bimmer and failed miserably!
...and just think, he is our little grand son, how we have grown!yes it definitely is. although to be honest wood paneling and chrome wheelwell trim were from a different era. so i guess you'll have to choose one or the other.
however, may i suggest this to be your inspiration fro retro? polished wheels, white letters, and a nissan stripe on the bottom?
I don't have mudgaurds on my Frontier, but I did put those FTP stainless fender trims on there and they look good. IMO it would be easy to adjust for mudguards.Want to add this, but not sure it would look good with the mudguards installed. Anyone done this to their truck? I found a universal application from TFP. Only pics I can find are on vehicles with no mudguards.
The stainless trims were a piece of cake, about an hour to install. I got the mirror cover and handle covers as a package deal on ebay. They come with 3M tape, but I used Loctite Stick n' seal glue as the tape wouldn't hold.I like the trim, Jag. Not too over the top. How was the installation?
edit: Actually I like the mirrors and handles as well, would really liven up my dark truck. give me the low down on what parts you used if you don't mind. Also, if you add a stubby chrome antenna I bet that would look good.
