    I'd like to see it with just the outer edge of the bezel blacked out.Kind of like to set off the bezels from the surround,put some black electrical tape over that part and see what it looks like.Or,just black out the flat portion nearest to the bulbs,looks almost like you did that in your signature pic.

    BTW, it looks like I'm not the only one who wasn't crazy about the black headlight rims!

    Just kiddin'. Your car is so nice otherwise!

    StudeRich,

    The wheels are Hayes #82552, 15" X 6", which are a Ford Bronco II application, if I recall. Tires are P205/75R15 Firestones. The combination fits well and drives well.

    BTW, it looks like I'm not the only one who wasn't crazy about the black headlight rims!

    Jim; Nice looking Daytona, are those Chrysler or Ford wheels that push the tires way out in the fender?

    I did that to my "Youkon Gold" '65 Cruiser way back in 1968, only I masked them off and only blacked out that flat area directly around the headlights, I also had a pair of black "Rally Stripes" off-set to the drivers side, going all the way from the front valance, up over the roof and trunk to the rear bumper. (Avanti "gun-sight inspired.)
    I really way it looked, but I agree, the total black-out, as pictured above,seems to be just a tad too much.

    You have a beautiful Daytona, Jim, but I think it looks better without the blackout.

    I blacked out the headlight rims on the 61 Lark I had in college, but I wouldn't do it today.

    Dick has it right, I think that would be NEAT!

    I think somebody needs to pull the inboard headlights out and run cold air tubes to the aircleaner from the openings...ala some early 60's FX cars [].
