    Thoughts on this idea please...

    What does everyone think of cat eyes on a seville? Something like a vinyl overlay to go onto the head lights. would the vinyl hold up to the heat? Here's a quick draw up using MS paint...I know the angles aren't the same lol

    Just doesn't look right, and I'm willing to bet if it was a vinyl material a simple car wash would strip it right off

    Not necessarily a carwash, but take EyeKandyBoats (Taylor)'s opinion. He knows what he's doing with vinyl.

    My shop helper John has some really cool body modification ideas. Why he's helping me and not starting a customizing shop, I don't know. But him and I were toying with the idea of grafting a 99 STS front end on to my 97 Eldorado. The Eldo was the only car that didn't receive the exterior upgrade around the new millenium. Cadillac really should have kept building that car.

    Ideas are a starting point. Keep at it Kick94. Cadillacs are luxury cars with a touch of performance. IMO, if the bodies are going to be modified at all, we need to focus toward a muscular look while not taking away from the classy design of a Cadillac.

    Around this time next year, if I follow through with a plan that has kept me awake all night, we will have a really big announcement to make and an unveilling that will make every Cadillac owner drool. No details yet because the idea is just up in the air right now. But I will probably be sending N*Caddy and Eyekandyboats an email soon with some of the details and a request for assistance.
