Default Bird Facelift

Old Ford headlights had seen better days, purchased a pair of smoked replacements that I added LED lights. Removed bumper turn lights and filled in adjuster holes for inner headlights. Another thing you might want to check is the AC drain hose so that it doesn't drain directly on the headlight. Added a hose to keep water away. A big upgrade was to strip the paint off of mirrors and polish the aluminum, really like the look thanks to Mark R. Taped off coach, primed and then color and added a swirl design to the front. New LED strip under headlight for amber turn signal, centered up driving lights and built grills on backside of them, reinstall WOG badge and to top it all off with its name RIVETED.. we are very pleased with the outcome.
