    Looking for ideas for skirts that look sweet in my 51 super riviera. The stock ones are eh... anyone use something else?

  4. I would like to say "yes', but that goes back to 1957 to 1960. Chances are slim in finding a photo.
    If I should find one, I will certainly advise you.

    Hi Nailheadjay, nice Buick. I wanted something different for my Merc and found a guy on here that did some super long skirts for his Cadillac project. He made them out of a skeleton of 1/2" round tubing and then skinned them with sheetmetal so I gave it a shot. See pics, maybe this will give you some ideas? they wer not that hard to do, just took some time and patience and a little help from our borhters here on the HAMB with cool ideas!

    I used a set of foxcraft skirts on my 52 Buick but didn't like the way they looked on the bottom so I ended up remaking them so they matched the fender line on the bottom and that looked great. You can see my build pictures on my flickr photo page at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/buickfan/albums/72157604632746603

    Hi .... If you are willing to find same model Buick hood you could cut a full length skirt out of each side of the hood ..seen this done on a 49 Cadillac ..looked pretty smick...all the curves blend pretty well with the quarter panel...get some body to photo shop it .....photos were om HAMB but have been deleted since the format was changed.......
