    Here is the speaker cover Robbie made over at Pacific Coast Customs. It ties the package tray to the rest of the interior. It turned out great, thanks Robbie.

    Looks Great! Love the color combo! I miss the port holes, but the stainless on the side still screams Buick. The chop turned out great! The whole car just looks right. This helps keep the motivation going for my Buick.

    Thanks guys. So my last Sunday before I leave for GNRS and I went over to my friends shop. He helped me make the scoop grilles. Check them out and let me know what you guys think. Its sad to see a project that I have had for so long be "finished" Its kinda bitter sweet.

    Those scoop grilles are a nice touch. They draw just enough attention to the scoops.

    LeftCoastCruiser, Thanks man and it was good talking to you. Yea I got a participation award. I really don't know what that means. In my class there was only a first and second so maybe its a third. lol I had a blast and got to meet a lot of awesome people so that was enough for me.
