    The views with the molded rear fenders are so Art Deco/ Delahaye looking style. Sculpture. Well done.

    Vic. Thank you I’m happy with how the car flows. I originally thought I should’ve chopped it a little more. But now with the windows in I’m very happy.

    A lot of guys try to achieve the smoothster look on the rear of their ride but that Buick is a text book definition of what the custom guys shoot for!

    I just set my Appleton’s on just to look. I’m so happy. I can’t wait for this thing to get cut and buffed so all of the chrome can go on.

    Kyle did a great job on the paint so there’s very little orange peel. But we want to make it as perfect as possible so it’ll get cut and buffed.

    My buddy Sergio come over and cut and buffed the spots around where the chrome is. So now I can mount my exterior chrome. I don’t want to cut the whole car till after the headliner goes in. No matter what I always find a little over spray from the glue. So I’m waiting till I have money to get the headliner in to do the whole car.

    Working with beautiful fresh paint and beautiful fresh chrome was so fucking stressful.
