    Slightly understated G machine:) Lookin great bud. Your car is even tough not to like for the guys that don't like large diameter wheels.

    I vote for no rocker panel moldings.

    What wheels are those? They look to me like Ford Racing wheels?

    Another "no" vote on installing rocker moldings. Looks too clean and mean without them!

    Your vote on the rocker moulding is duly noted...thanks.

    The wheels are replicas of the Ford Racing "FR500" wheel.

    I think a modified rocker trim would looks good, the lip at the top polished and the bottom painted the same black with the same level of gloss as the wheels, maybe powdercoated instead of painted.

    Here's a crude photoshop...

    It kinda takes the linear line of the front bumper and the lip of the wheel and just carries that bit down the car, not too garish, sorta understated.

    You could put some black electrical tape on an old rocker trim and put it up there to see if you like it or not, drilling the holes for the clips would suck if you don't like it.
