Landlord Resto Pics (Trying to finish her up!)

Recommended Posts

Buickgsman

I am about 30% done with the restoration of my Landlord and figured I would post a few pics. I'm getting excited to say the least. I'm waiting for the rims to come back from powder coating to put the tires on. It will be a nice milestone to get it back on 4 tires. I will keep adding pics as I progress.Bob

Looks really good. :D:D:D

Just one tip, get the drive shaft in there soon. Its a bear once too many more parts are in that little space. Don't ask how I know. :o:O

More of todays progress. I have most of the smaller parts painted and back on. I got the steering back together. The less parts on the bench the better! Looking forward to getting the tires on and I am beginning on my grill resto tomorrow.

This is actually not a rechrome. I sourced some pre chromed steel and replaced the old stuff. I made a fixture to put everything back in the correct place and this is how it came out. I am going to offer my services for anyone wanting to restore their grill. I will post shortly in the appropriate area.

That depends on who puts the tires on. I have access to a tire machine and could put the rears on, but I will chip the inside of the rims. SOOOOO I bring all 4 to the local truck tire place and they do a nice job of not scratching anything. Worth the 30 bucks!
