    Agreed seems odd they wouldn’t have done them while the chop was being done.

    That shot of the Buick with the roof totally removed scares me! Guess the owner doesn´t fear commitment!

    I really like the tail light treatment. I always thought the stock setup was a little off, but i spend some time looking at a 49 Buick a month ago and they do sort of make sense in the original design.

    WOW !

    Beautiful job on the Buick.

    You are right James D. I refer to things like cutting the roof off of that Buick as “Pucker Time” as your entire body seems to pucker up in anticipation……..LOL

    I believe there was a deal made on the paint-job. I think it had to be done before a certain time, which only allowed for the chop to get done before the paint deadline would pass. So the car was painted without a few of the other planned custom touches, and the car was enjoyed for some time before the taillights were then done. I think Darren plans a few more touches later one. Then possibly a complete new paint-job if needed.

    I had a small part in the taillights as well.
    After discussing it with Darren at the 2015 Old Style Weekend in Sweden I did this visual to show what we had talked about.

    Another chop project Buick. This time a Sedanet from 1947. Another not-really-all-that-easy-to-chop models!

    Really nice tasteful chops.  Thanks for sharing that.

    And it’s ridiculous how much better that Buick tail light placement is!
