    Nice job! I would like to have seen the rust damage under the vinyl where it meets the quarter panel. That must have been a bitch to fix. My mom had a caddy just like that, which she used to flatten my neighbor's mail box (& I mean flatten).

    my thoughts as well, some cars just don't seem right to me in flat colors, Buicks and Caddy's mostly....
     
  4. yeah it was a total bitch to form the new sheet metal and everything the rust was pretty bad on both sides of the vinyl top and in the front pillars of the roof and a little around the windshield were it must have been leaking

    the only problem was I got so busy working on it that I never stoped to take pictures of fixing the rust spots and I never got any real good pictures of the car before it was bagged or anything :(
