Thanks. I just figured I'd give it a shot. I didn't have much money into the tint anyway and now I have more tools. Which is totally fine with me. I can never have enough tools and equipment for stuff happy

I've done tint on all my cars before, but I always have a snag here or there and it never comes out perfect. So I'm just gonna have a pro do it.

Ok.  Got the tint done on Tuesday.  Here are some pics of the finished product.  Turned out really well.  35% smoke tint.

Yes I am and thanks. It turned out better than I would have been able to do. Next steps going to be the rims or exhaust.

Replaced my side script emblems with a place in california. I have a link posted under the Gold Plating thread, but here's a couple of pics of the emblems.

Found a couple of shoulder pads with Buick on them off of ebay.  Just got them today.  They are pretty nice.  Here are some pictures of them.

They didn't cost much either. It was like 12 bucks for the pair.

I just got the trunk cover back from getting it gold plated from the same company I bought the side emblems from.  Turned out real nice.  I also repainted the inside emblem as well.  Here are some pics of it.

Here are a couple of pics with it finally on the car.  Just got it done a few minutes ago.  Gotta get her washed to.  Cars a dirty mess.

Yes they did. Would have liked to have gotten more of a chrome look with the R when I painted it, but it still looks good enough to me. The other emblem was so corroded on the back it was eating away at itself. So I'm glad I was doing this anyway. Oh and I got the car washed during lunch, lol.
