It was great to see this at the recent Oldschool meet. Even better to learn who owned it!

 

"Probably won't be slammed as it's quite nice to fill her with 6 people and go for a cruise without loosing the exhaust"

I heartily approve of the lack of slam.

This car is perfect in my eyes. That limo spec. "Comfortable" is an understatement when describing the back seat. And the fold out table and reading lights. Delish!

Chur'bo. Hoping to find a set of 15 5x5" Buick Riviera wheels and then do the whitewall / redwall thing.

Slight slam may ensue. Wheels first though!

what type of welding was done on the patches?

they look great only thing i would do is keep going and doing spot welds all the way around but trying to keep the heat to a minimal to pervent panels warping

great stuff

MIG welding. Good advice. Yup I did a spot on each side then cooled, then another spot on each side and cooled etc. The panel steel is pretty thick on the old girl too :)
