  1. 54 century 4dr sedan

    Some pictures just take to a color change to set the mood or era. This was one of them. Older home and American flag. Bingo.
  2. Happy Birthday MrEarl!

    Happy Birthday!
  3. 54 century 4dr sedan

    I can assure you this is exactly what the previous owner would want to hear.2 doors, 4 doors....no matter....a blast from the past.
  4. 54 century 4dr sedan

    The family Buick back in 54.
  5. 70,000 is not a lot. I would bet a hone,new rings and clean up the heads. Concerning hardened seats, my 264 was rebuilt prior to my ownership. The heads had hardened seats installed. One seat failed with very little mileage on the motor. Lot of dollars later she has a new set heads without seat.Anyone who looks at your heads and recommends the seats....run. This ain't a Chevy motor. The manual is thorough on head work.
  6. "Cali" has heart again

    Coming together! I like the red rims as well!
  7. Column Harness

    Nice work!
  8. What is the mileage on the block? If not that many and the insides look good perhaps just a hone of the cylinders and new rings. Put it back together.
  9. If they are using a machine to true up the frame and straighten the front portion of the frame then yes, I would think $500 is a good investment. Time worth taking because when you are ready to start mounting fenders/bumpers and cross members it will be as it should. I can only imagine the struggle getting the front straight with the frame moved to the side like that.
  10. I would say $500.00 is reasonable.

  13. headliner replacement

    It is not to complicated. 1. When removing the old liner keep the metal bows in the same order the they were removed. 2. The windlace I did replace. I installed the lace first then proceeded with the liner. A good video on how to remove Part 1. Part 2 shows installing. In the video he removes the windshield. No glass needs to be removed in your Buick.
  14. Do Dreams come true?

    If you followed the manual and torqued to required lbs there will be nothing coming apart! She will fire and clatter to the point you think she is falling apart. Keep the idle up and let the oil flow.
