1970 Buick Skylark
Posted by KWT on Sunday, April 16, 2017 10:19 AM

While looking thru storage to find a hood for a fellow forum member... unfortunately didn't find the hood...I stumbled upon this kit. It's not been open in around 20 years, or so. Most of kit is painted and some pieces assembled. But apparently I was working on this one, when I decided to call it quits...

The body had smudge marks, I assume from touching the box, so I pulled out the scratch-x went to town. I don't remember what color it's painted... kinda looks like a blackcherry... but I'm diggin the outcome. So much so, I believe I may finish it up.

As always, thanks for looking!

Definitely that will need to be finished.

That mold release line on the c pillar needs to be dealt with.

Oh thanks, prowler... and I had just talked myself into NOT monkeying with it...lol.

You're right, though. I'm gonna have to do something with it... sticks out like a sore thumb... ugh

Perfect time and car to do a vinyl top. Solve that c-pillar issue without a total repaint. I remember most of them having vinyl tops. Smile

My first car was a 70' Skylark.  Navy blue with a black vinyl top.  Had a cracked windshield.  When I bought it I said first thing I'm going to fix is the windshield.  Sold it about 5 years later, cracked windshield and all.  I'd love to have a kit but haven't been able to find one.

That gloss looks great Jeremy! You'll get to where dealing with those mold lines won't be a big deal buddy.

Count another vote for a black vinyl top. I remember a buddy's '69 Nova that was painted nearly the same color and it had a black vinyl top. He ran a set of Cragars on it and it looked really fine.
