For the door trim if it is like my Pontiac you have to get the window down further than its. Behind the inside door panel take the window stop off and the window goes down further. Then the should be small screws holding the trim.  The Buick guys will tell you if i am all wet.

Good Evening.BREAKING NEWS FROM VIRGINIA..I removed rest of door trim.(both sides) door panels. Headlight bezels..Mustache.. Going back Tuesday morning.   Even found a for sale sign inside the rear door..HAD THE CAR FOR 4 YEARS wondered why the door was hard to put down and it sounded like sheet metal. Noise ..but it went down easy

Been there, your car instantly reminded me of my 56 Chevy, waited months for a local guy who was known to be an ace with body & paint.  He primed the car and did nothing for months.  Took it to a real shop who re-did the hack job and got it done.  Such is life..  Nice bodystyle on the Buick, looking forward to seeing it done.

Great motivation John.

 

Guy who was supposed to do my car did a lot of fancy stuff, flip flop painted ribbons etc. I was cinnected by a classmate, what a dissapointment and waste.  "Oh just pay for materials used so far"  Ya think, you wasted months of my time pal...  

Well. You will be excited upon completion I am sure.  Love these vintage Buicks.
