Started on this the day after I got laid off. Still a long way to go though. Waiting on detail parts to wrap up interior and engine. Thanks for looking. Any cool ideas or thoughts are always welcome.Big Smile

X2. It woud be correct on a 70GS but not a 70 GSX. They came only in white and saturn yellow.

Looks nice so far. Is the interior white or cream? The first photo looks cream and looks pretty cool, but it could be trick of the light.

Keep on Building!

Thanks guys, I do appreciate it, no exterior striping and the interior is parchment. I finally got it finished up.

Geno!  Glad you are building a GS and not the overblown GS-X. Buick Gran Sports are such awesome cars, understated and overpowered.  Your's is lookin good, keep it going!

Love the detail on the interior. What did you use for the doorlocks?

Thanks all, I appreciate it. The door locks are cut down insect pins available at most craft stores. I drill out the top of the door panel cut down the pin long enough that'll it'll insert through and glue into place.
