Looking good. Great color.

I remember when those double striped whitewalls were a fad - short lived, though. Did those tires come with that kit?

Oooo! a 66 Riv. I have been trying to get one of those for years.

I'm officially ticked off with you now!!

I'll be watching.

I had a set on my 62 Buick Special back in the day! Tiger Paws!

Yes, they are the kit tires. Just painted the insert flat black and used the x-acto knife to scrape it away from the lines.
They unlike the real tire, are raised ridges but you don't notice it when done.

Not in the UK though. The 1970 is easily available but I don't care much for it.

Nice work Mike. Can't have too many Buicks in the cabinet or garage. Any change of a box photo?

Cheers,
Chris

Sorry, forgot that you were from the UK.
Yep, they have shipping so high on stuff now it's ridiculous!
