This is what a Southern Florida State police radio call will sound like:
“Attention all units, any units in the area, BOLO for a gold in color vintage sedan signal 12 traveling at high speed almost causing multiple signal 4‘s. High roller last seen traveling northbound on SR 871 extension approaching SR 836. Time delay about 2 mikes. Reporter no longer on line, station clear at 10:03.

(Unit) MIA 672......(Dispatch) 672 MIA, in the area 10-54, 10-25, show me 10-98.

“ Never going to catch that”

My dad's olds was a 68 with similar gold tone paint.  Looking forward to seeing your Buick completely finished and ready to roll!

Hello, here is the rest of the work.

I continue with the engine cover and the trunk lid.
I called the person in charge of the airbrush in the morning to ask him if I could take him during the week, and he told me that I would take him in the early afternoon. So between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. I had to quickly remove the chrome rods, wiring harness, lock, buffers, ... and I did not arrive in time to remove the Electra 225 logos (I thought there were nuts from behind but in fact not).
So I protected the logos well so that it is not damaged.

Then later once airbrush
