Clifford, I admire your photography and your skill in correcting these issues. Please
elaborate on how you did the painting of the TSM lower section. The paintwork looks uniform from top to bottom. Did you paint the whole car? Was there trim removal involved and if so how did you achieve this without destroying things?

I think that I am not alone in stating that I would be reluctant to even try this work. Well done.

Buicks by Alan Dinsmore #26847.1
Portholes? by Stanton Lyman #26847.1.1
My first impulse was to agree with Stanton. Then I checked old ads. (pics) by David Holcombe #26847.1.1.1
According to a Google search, they still used three in '54. They must have waited until '55 (EOM) by Clifford Read #26847.1.1.2
Stanton, being first of all a Buick collector, I can confirm you are mistaken by Alex Taylor #26847.1.1.3
Very nice display. The '57 & '54 are my faves. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #26847.2

I also thought the trim on the Spark Riviera was a goof. But then I squinted by Mark Lampariello #26847.4
I've tried to bring the gutter rail to its rightful location. See pics below.... by Clifford Read #26847.4.1
How did you do it? (EOM) by Harvey Goranson #26847.4.1.1
I carefully filed off the original gutter detail and painted the filed area black..... by Clifford Read #26847.4.1.1.1
Clifford, that's some damn good work you did to correct that flaw. (EOM) by Steve Jakubczak #26847.4.1.1.1.1
I agree. Clifford, your work is really impressive. Well done! (EOM) by David Holcombe #26847.4.1.1.1.1.1
Here's NEO's '57 Roadmaster Hardtop Coupe (PIC) by Barry Levittan #26847.5
Only the Special and Century Buicks had the three piece windows. (EOM) by Bob Jackman #26847.5.1
I respectfully disagree, Bob - the Model 76R hardtop coupe had a divided rear window. by Barry Levittan #26847.5.1.1
I always thought what Bob thinks. But, much to my surprise, here's a pic. by John Kuvakas #26847.5.1.1.1Zone Diplomat
Note the scallops ahead of the rear wheels on that 76R. NEO's is the 75 which has Roadmaster script. by Barry Levittan #26847.5.1.1.1.1
