    Yes, I sprayed it and did all the bodywork and chop. I cut the firewall to drop the windshield. That way I got hidden wipers and could use stock height windshields.

    I wouldn't walk across the street to look at a custom, BUT I'd pay to see your Buick. Damn fine job. Well thought out, well designed and well executed.

    Shiny, no wrinkle paint and a lot of great body work makes for a great looking Buick:):D

    Love the chop good to see it shine, single or two stage and what paint ? Damn a hot rod life is too short not to own a custom. Over all great job you should be proud..
