Romy also has a second 1970 Buick LeSabre, but it is a green (actually multi-colored) 2 door, which he also decided to get painted by the same guy, Scott. So on Thursday afternoon, we all packed up the 2 door Buick with camping gear and spare parts, and headed off to Green Bay. We didn't have any problems getting there, except that we arrived after dark. Scott let us camp in his huge yard, so we set up our tents and were very excited to see the car in the sunlight the next morning. Scott also made a nice fire in his campfire pit, and we had some drinks and sat around the fire.
Here are some before and after pictures of the 4 door gold Buick:
The Gold Buick before it was painted in the garage.
The 'new' Gold Buick after Scott did all of the body work and paint. It was painted with the original color, Cornet Gold Poly, and had a metallic sheen.
The rear of the Gold Buick. The black vinyl roof will be put on soon, but for now, Scott just sanded it and primed the roof in preparation for the vinyl roof to be put on later.
Romy put a rebuilt 455 engine in before it got painted.

Romy gets the Gold Buick ready to hit the road back to Berwyn.
The Green Buick will be painted by Scott next.
