Let me try to post Chuck's photo by using the board's attachment function:
I've converted Chuck's photo from a BMP file (1.97 MB) into a JPEG file (98.6 KB), and resized from 720 x 960 pixels to 720 x 765 pixels.
The attachments are restricted to 800 x 800 pixels:
So I can't figure out why Chuck isn't able to upload the resized photo....o No:
My car has been sitting at the painters for two weeks ready for paint and just haven t found time to get it done. The bad side of the car being fill in work:ball:
But I have been polishing some stainless and it it looking nice. I also just picked up a set of headers for the little 350.
I started this build not wanting any engine mods, now 4 bbl and headers with the dual exhaust should help get her down the road a bit quicker:TU:
Everybody needs a 4bbl and headers.
Sounds like you are ahead of me. I just cut off a quarter panel from a parts car to replace the "under bondo" surprise on my car.
My Buick hit the paint both this morning for a fresh coat of Saturn Yellow paint:TU: Still will need color sand, stripes, more clear, sand and buff but making progress
Looking forward to seeing pics of your vert with the new paint Chuck:kodak:
That makes two of us:TU:
Still a ways to go but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it's yellow wow is that bright:TU:
Looks awesome Chuck!:TU:
It has been a group effort, and everyone here on V8Buick derserves a little credit. From finding parts to teaching me how to do things corect I have enjoyed it.
Chuck, I can't wait to see it in person!!!!
As my above post says it is a group effort to restore a Buick and I still need to paint the GS grill I got from you Timou:
Chuck, nice progress.. I too have mine at the body/paint shop... Quick question,, any pictures of your deck lid?
I am having a little trouble getting a nice even fit and was wondering if you experienced the same thing?
Deck lid fit well before restoration and still does
Re: Chucks 72 skylark custom convertible to GS clone
You were right about the pricing of the total job. And to be honest the $10k would have been low at $50 and hour. My neibor took the car in as fill in so he is only charging me $25 and still over my $5k But all that is left is the red pin stripes clear coat and a buff. My baby shoud be home by the midle of next week
Still needs some red stripes and a couple coats of clear, but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting bright
you have a nice neighbor only charging $25.00.. looks good too!
My body guy is charging me $40.00 and that was negotiated down from the starting original price of $45.00.. The price we pay to play.. Ouch..
Well my GSX clone in finaly home, the body work and paint are done now, some time on the reassembly. I am hoping to have her on the road in time for the CarCraft Nationals at the MN state Fair grounds in July. I might be optimistic, but thats the goal.
Your Buick looks sweet Chuck!:TU:
Nice Chuck. Looking good.
I might go by and check mine out today. Wish it was as far as yours, but I don't think so.
