I'm starting up over here as the "newbie" thread on my acquisition of this car has probably run its course. I did get the front bumper on today. The job took most of the day, as these things always do, but it sure looks good. Remember, this bumper was removed by the previous owner back in 2004 and sent to a plating shop to be re-chromed. It was never removed from the packaging it came back from the shop in until today. For anyone who hasn't seen the "newbie" thread on this, the previous owner had taken ill and eventually passed away last summer. I purchased the car from his family in January and have finally had enough decent weather since then to get it out of the garage and do some work on it. I still need to do the roof rack, align the hood, and reattach the various "Custom Cruiser" and "Oldsmobile" scripts, and that ought to mostly take care of the exterior. Lots to do on the interior, though! By the way, hiding on the background in these photos is my '67 Delta 88 convertible. 50 degrees and sunshine was enough reason to put the top down and go for a spin, which was another reason putting the bumper on took most of the day.
