I posted a few pics on the Welcome Wagon thread, but decided to restart the thread here. I picked up this Buick a year ago and drove her home to Walla Walla, WA from Kamiah, ID. She got almost 28 mpg on the trip (about 160 miles). http://www.stationwagonforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14248 is the addy for the original post - there are some pics there also. When I started the thread, I had scraped the old vinyl and padding off with the spatula attachment on a multi-tool, sanded the glue/residue off, and mudded the screws and scrapes, and smoothed the roof into the windshield ring after fixing a small rusted out spot on the ring with a chunk of angle iron JB Welded in. It looked like they had dragged the top accross some pavement before they put it on the car. I removed all of the trim above the centerline of the car. At this time I plan to paint only the roof-the rest of the car has good paint and few dings - that will be the next phase! I chose not to re-apply vinyl due to cost. Of course the trade-off was time! At this point the top is primed with a build-up primer. I will sand it with 240 grit to prepare it for the first coat of paint (white). The first pic has the roof smoothed into the windshield ring. The second the scratches all over - some caused by me with heavier grit sandpaper than what should have been used. Third: "frosting" half-sanded, the window openings primed and painted,and finally in primer.
