Nearly every convertible made has a different frame to add support to the vehicle for lost support for the lack of a solid upper body.

And guys looking to go faster many times will add support to their rides to keep them together. The engine brace support in many Mustangs is an example of added support. There are kits for that one.

Flat braces running in a diagonal manner may serve that Buick.

The Lincoln is back from the body shop

I picked up the Lincoln this morning after a repaint. What do you think?

The paint job looks great! Is the color a light green metallic? The color reminds me of the color on my favorite station wagon . . . a 1971 Buick Sprotwagon . . . Buick's name for the color was Fern Green Metallic. The closest I have been able to get with the last two cars that I ordered was the Gecko Green Metallic that was on my 2007 Volkswage New Beetle Convertible.

Kevin,

The original color was Jade, a metallic. This is a pearl, but looks identical and looks great, next step is to replace the emerald vinyl roof.

We currently plan on being in Huron, hope to see you there.

Looking very good Bill. My '57 is IIRC '76 Lincoln colors, light and dark jade metallic. Somewhat partial to the look.

The new roof just tops it up nicely.

Merry Christmas.
