I plan to use the 7" conversion headlights sold by "Round Eye" (Pic below)

What about that COOL "1-year only" yellow trim that the '77 model trucks are famous for?
The trim stays intact. I will be using that as an accent color on others areas, possibly under the hood.

Yeah, I know but you are biased. Great to see you back again, and thanks for keeping us safe.

I am also curious about the trim. I know you are sitting on a black NOS trim set . Sounds like you have been a busy little planner.
I have been slowly working on this for a while. I have a full set of renderings, but some of the changes are still undecided. The wheels are not set yet, but I do look the retro looks with gray centers to match the gray grill and headlight surround.

I truly appreciate all the kind words and compliments. My truck is clean, but it could use a good refreshing, so I decided to take it a step further. All of the external changes will be "bolt on". I plan to keep all of the original parts in the event that I ever want to reverse the process.
