Are you declaring your intention to GITTER DONE by the end of the year? If so, I'll add you to the list. B)

I have stories.  You can't change your mind once you start.  Also a good drunk test for guests.

Back to topic, I am finishing another WIP that got started this year, so it doesn't count for this topic.  But when the creative bug bites me, everything else takes a back seat.  I have the tailgate inside done, but still need to make the chains, center tail light, jamb.  I have also worked on making the single driver seat correct.

Bodywork on the main body is under way. I shot some primer on the bare body just to see how bad it actually is. I gotta say... it's not as bad as I thought, with a little smoothing out and a little filler it'll be ready for some paint.

Gettin r done...  well trying atleast! 😁

I separated the grill/bumper assembly into it’s base components. First because the plating is terrible. Second, the headlight surrounds need to be yellow. And third, I want to paint the grill black.0BDDCDB1-6F4A-4C17-86B0-2030F445A94F.thumb.jpeg.64bafe61019ec793df89bbbdf0d69277.jpeg

Believe me that is not the norm! That was while on break at work. It all has to be gone by the end of shift because someone else sits at the desk.

 My supervisor is very understanding. Then again, I did build him a model of his 69 Mach 1!  Here at my desk at home. ...

That's a good looking kit.  Always loved that car. Buick should've built more than just 276 Stage ones. The yellow is my favorite... I had a chance to buy a real GS back in the day, I passed on it... needed too much work. It was a street/strip car, (more strip than street).   It had a fiberglass hood, bumper, fenders, and roll cage. Pretty cool car though.

My cousin was a big time Buick fan.   My aunt and uncle bought a 68 Buick skylark brand new.  They gave him the car when he turned 18. He turned it into an all out street racer. He had the transmission rebuilt at Motion Performance.  He pulled the transmission out at his house in Uniontown, Long Island New York.  He put it in a shopping cart and proceeded to push the card to Baldwin Long Island. Roughly 10 miles!

I gotta admit, that's one of the coolest '68-'69 Buicks I've ever seen. B)

I just saw a Scania truck that was started last century, thread started 2013, just finished.  You may want to include them into this topic.

I also see a new topic idea, Who Has The Most Cluttered Bench?  :rolleyes:

A quick update on the progress! Went with a new color, the side chrome is closer looking but not really accurate.

I got these from Fireball models, they are 69-70 Pontiac hubcaps. I know they are not correct for a 67 but I really liked them and thought they looked great. They are really good quality and very reasonably priced and they do come with a set of center decals.. They are just hubcap style so you do need wheel backs. He also offers some other Pontiac wheels!

Here's that IMC VW Beetle, and it only took me about 50 years to GITTER DONE (more or less). Hope to have pics up Under Glass soon.
