THIS ONE NEEDED PARTS AND THAT GAVE ME LOTS OF TIME TO GET THE BODY REPAIRS FINISHED TO A HIGH STANDARD. THE HEADLIGHT AREA WAS ALL BOOGERED UP FROM SOME MEATHEAD TRYING TO REMOVE OLD GLUED IN "STEMMED" LENSES. sO I CUT IT OUT AND COMPLETED REPLACED THEM. I AM QUITE PROUD OF THE JOB--WASN'T EASY. I HAVE PROVIDED 4 NEW LENSES. NEW STUFF INCLUDES: TRIPLE GAUGES +TACH, NEW CHROME TAIL LIGHTS AND CUSTOM RED DOME TAIL LIGHT COVERS, PLUS A COMPLETE SET OF 5 NOS BUICK CAPS THAT ARE HARD TO FIND. THE 5TH CAP OF COURSE IS IF YOU USE THE CONTI-KIT. THE FRONT CHROME AND GLASS IS STELLAR. THE REAR CHROME BUMPER WAS BROKEN COMPLETELY IN HALF BUT I WAS ABLE TO GET IT BACK IN ONE PIECE. ITS ROUGH BUT ROCK SOLID. IF YOU USE THE CONTI KIT IT COMPLETELY COVERS THE REPAIRS ON THE BUMPER. OCCASIONALLY I DO SEE THESE BUMPERS FOR SALE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO RUN A CONTI KIT IT SHOULDN'T TAKE TOO LONG TO FIND A REPLACEMENT REAR BUMPER. OVERALL I AM QUITE HAPPY WITH THE OUTCOME HERE EVEN CONSIDERING KEEPING THIS AND BUILDING IT. WHEELS AND TIRES IN MOCK-UP PHOTO DO NOT COME WITH KIT.
