1962 Buick.

A rebuild from some crappy built up car I found on Ebay and got fleeced for. It was originally hand painted with what looked like a toothbrush in sky blue, with a bare plastic white roof which had gone a nice shade of grandmas teeth yellow  with age. It also sported faded chrome and some custom wheels which had turned gold. The vent panel between the windshield and bonnet and broken in 3 places to, a bit like my will to live building this. It also featured a few badly filled holes in the body,and a slight warp. But I persisted well into the early hours. 

After filling in more cracks and creased plastic than the kardashians surgeon, it was time to pick  a colour. So I decided to relive the glory of the one I built and wrecked nearly 20 years ago.

Luckily I had a spare chrome from the 62 I broke up years ago.

Like my wife, even though she was annoying from the moment I woke up to the moment I went to bed, I kind of love having her around.

That is nice, even more so after reading what you started with. You shoulda posted a "before" picture. Your foiling job is excellent

Good looking Buick, arcturus.  I hope for your sake that your wife doesn't read your post.  Cheers.
