Thanks Patrick, '66 Buick could be the perfect solution, but I don't have that kit and don't want to buy one now. 

Instead I cut a slice of red transparent plastic and bent it slightly from the ends and from the middle too. Then I added  few narrow strings of chrome tape and now I have some sort of tail light panel for this Buick. In the middle, above the license plate, I will put the Buick logo decal. 

It could be better for sure, but I'm guite pleased with it. 

Also I needed a three spoke Grant steering wheel, but my stock was empty. Had to make one.

Cheers Gerald! Thanks for the kind words. 

Today I had time to put some chrome trims to the body shell. Also I managed to make those thin black and red stripes to the sides. One section still to do. 

There's somerhing blocking the chassis to sit perfectly to the body, when I insert the glasses. I went outside of the house, before losing it and doing something stupid.

I think you found a perfect solution for it.

Well done!

Thanks fellows, I think this Buick Skylark 1965 is now ready to go Under The Glass. I added the rear view mirror, exhaust pipes, the antenna and it is now registered too. All kind of parts went under the hood.

The B&M shifter for the TH400 transmission was made too, but unfortunately I didn't take any photos of it or the interior. The knob on the shifter is a scratch made 8-ball.
