Hello again all. Thought Id stop in and share a progress update on my Buick project. Ive finally finished both taillight housings and shaped the fin behind them to closer resemble the Buick rear. Ive also added evergreen strips around the side window openings to represent the stainless steel trim and made up some quarter vent windows,extended the doors by rescribing the panel lines and also laminated the decklid to give it that slight hump and longer lid length the Buick has then rescribed the gaps to be nice and deep. Hope you enjoy the pics. Any comments or suggestions, good or bad are welcome.
Just a couple of update pics of the work Ive been doing on the front bumper. I used the lower part of the front bar from a 58 Chev and the top part is from the custom grille/bumper option in the AMT 51 Chev kit which also has 57 Chev bumper ends to flow around the side of the front guards to the wheelarches .
Thanks for the interst and comments guys...its definitely helping me keep on track with the build.
Im considering making a 57 Olds front bumper rather than the 56 Buick as Im not a fan of that design...and that way I can keep putting off making the right taillight housing for a little longer lol.
