Brooklin Diaries for Feb 1
"It’s that time of the week once again, the moment you have all been waiting for…Brooklin Blog Day.
A lot of work has been done this week getting the BRK226 (1970 Buick GS 455) ready for assembly.

We hope you enjoy this week’s behind the scenes look at the factory.

PATTERN MAKING – SARAH
Sarah is making a window pattern for the BRK226 Buick.

PAINT ROOM – BOB

PAINT ROOM – BOB

Painted parts like this need to be done at the same time as the bodies.
If we sprayed them a week apart, using a different tin of paint, the colours might not be an exact match.

FINAL ASSEMBLY – JULIE
Not Buicks to assembly for a few days but Julie is pressing on with more Aquarama boats.
Here she is gluing the windshields into the plated frame."

I'd like to see whitewalls on it too, but as for redlines, I just don't think by Rick Thompson #25293.1.2
Yes you're probably right. BRK will not likely do many more 70s cars. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25293.1.2.1
I can't remember exactly when redlines became the latest and greatest thing. by Rick Thompson #25293.1.2.1.1
Yes the GTO was the first red line application I remember. I do recall by Jack Dodds #25293.1.2.1.1.1
Probably the last hurrah. Emission controls killed muscle cars around that time. I had a by Randall Olson #25293.1.2.1.1.1.1
Rick, I may try some red food dye on one of my old whitewalls. It may become a redline! (EOM) by Randall Olson #25293.1.2.1.1.2
