    John Lee Williamson, I love tubs and this is a custom 36 Buick Ex More Door that we are converting to a custom Tub. 36 buick.jpg 36 buick4.jpg 36 buick1.jpg
     
  16. A suggestion, look at Doan Spencers 32 with the Duval it has the corners tucked in, the outside posts are more parallel to the body sides and not sticking out like wings. I think the early Duval's were different than the recently made ones. You might want the earlier tucked in look?
    I love your Buick tub it's happening!!!
