    Default How I spent my winter this year - fryguy's "street" criuser

    1987 Buick Grand National:

    I wasnt gonna make this thread, but I think Raj wants to get the talks going about this car so he has races lined up when its done in a few months. I have pics of the turbo mock up but I will let raj share those. Not sure on how tight the security is on that part.. Anyways, this was a complete strip down.


    Starting Point:





    Stripped down. The doors need some light patching in the corners. Worst rust of all was the entire drivers rocker had to be replaced. It rusted from the inside out:






    Fiberglass decklid. Damaged from shipping. Was easier to just fix it myself. By time I noticed the damage my kids had already turned the box it was shipped in into a fort.

    Car is currently in the buffing stages. Should be complete later tonight.







    I am going to hopefully shoot the remaining pieces this weekend. Had to modify the front bumper to what Raj wanted:

    Thank you. I hope Raj puts some pics up of the turbo fab. LT1Pat did a pretty bad ass job on it.
