    And I remember getting hated on because I chose 39 merc headlights. I still think they fit the front end/grille perfectly. It’s Art Deco like what I am shooting with my car. But that’s my opinion. Haha.

    Happy 4th everyone!!!! I got my newly rebuilt and over hauled gauges back from Classic Instruments this week. So I couldn’t wait to put them in. The design we came up with turn out killer.

    Interior has started and looks killer. Chris @ Johnston Upholstry is killing it.

    I copied a couple pics of your car over into the Buick Club forum. We all agree that you have a nice build! Well there are a few purists over there that are not so discriminating, but they have kept quiet. I think it is a stunning car.

    Kbgreen, thank you. Yep purists aren’t the biggest fan of customs.

    Absolutely beautiful . But why the diamonds on the kick panels with pleats every where else? Not a dig just a question

    56premiere, thank you. That’s an honest question. There will be some diamond panels on the inside of the firewall as well. I personally like a little contrast. I’m letting my Upholstry buddy Chris have creative freedom. He has never let me down before so we’ll see how it looks when he is done.

    Windshield is in too. Thanks goes out to my good buddy Robbie for helping me on the stainless trim. It’s out of my pay grade. Lol

    I put on the hood and trunk latch on, they are too pretty for something no one will ever see.
