You gotta love a Buick. Good work so far. Try giving the paint a bit of a polish.

Jeez, I've had this on the back burner for a while.
entered this at wagga last October and scored a trophy for it, held together with blu- tac.
so I stripped it down and rebuilt it properly.
just a little bit more foil around the wheel arches and touch up the badging and that should be it.
