        Vicious6, thank you. Yes, I collect guitars, they are what keeps me happy. Lots of them. Been playing guitar since 1959. Yes, you guessed it....I'm old.

        Have a 69 Gibson Hummingbird in Cherryburst. Dad bought it new in 69. Unfortunately I am going to have to part with it.........it is mint.

        How much are you asking for it? Those are beautiful guitars, especially in CherryBurst. Maybe I could afford to buy it, but it depends how much you're asking.......I pretty tapped at the moment.

      I also really love your GN, Bruce. The history of that car alone makes it so amazing. You can tell by reading any post you make here how much that car means to you. And the car looks amazing, too! Hopefully we will be at a Buick gathering somewhere and we can meet in-person. I would love to check your car out up close and talk cars with ya. :cool:

      Talk soon Bruce!

      Hey Bruce! The headlights were tinted with a vinyl overlay from DecalFX.com. Here is the exact product I used:
      DECALFX.com! Smoked Headlight Film Tint Overlays Vinyl Decals Stickers Lens Protection for Head Lights, Fog Lights, Foglights, Tinted Smoke Windscreen, Lens Paint

      It applies very easily since out headlights are so flat on the front.

      Bruce, I can't thank you enough for the compliments on my car. I REALLY appreciate the kind words. It means a LOT hearing things like this from fellow TR brothers out there. I had been wanting a GN for over twenty years. For that entire time, ideas ran through my head on how I would build one. Finally in late 2008, I picked the car up from it's second owner. From that point on, this has been the most fun car I have ever had, hands down...
