Hello buddies, first of all I want to thank everyone for the praise and patience you brought to me. Because of the less of spare time there are so many requests left to process. Please let me tell you that I will draw every requested part and hope that I get some of these done the next weeks. But now let´s go over to the originally topic, the... 1972 Buick Riviera Boattail About three weeks ago I found a 1971 Riviera on ebay. I think it´s an All American Resin body. I only got the body, front and rear bumper, sepaerate hood, two sets of outer wheels and a custom steering wheel. After receiving the package and checking the parts I decided for a complete restauration. But because the deck lid louvers and the bumpers aren´t really nice and very difficult to restore I decided to make it a 1972... The grille has to be made too because I doesn´t have one. First of all I started to reshape the whole body lines and seems at first on the drivers side which is mostly done. Next will be passengers side. Passengers side before reshaping... Drivers side mostly done... You all know that I draw parts for 3d printing. That´s why the next thing I started was to model an all new front bumper, seperate headlights, seperate turn signal lenses and the grille. Completed this today and ordered the parts at shapeways. I will show them if they arrived. Here are some pics of the 3d model and one mock up pic with the drawing taped to the body. I hope you like my progress. Every suggestions and comments are welcome. Best, Rico P.S.: This project drives beside all the other parts I have left to model for 3d printing. So don´t be afraid. I´m at it to get all the things done but it will take some time yet...
