Project Car

Call me lame but my project car is a 1980 Buick LeSabre Limited coupe with a Pontiac 301 in it. So far i've put air shocks in the rear and started building a 355 for it. Now yesterday i was driving down the highway and the trim piece that goes along the edge of the vinyl top blew off. To give you more of an idea of where its at its the piece that runs from the drivers side of the roof to the passenger side if that makes any sense. Anyways does anybody have any suggestions on how i could find that piece the broke off. Here's some pics of it. I dont think it looks that bad for what it is. The 355 should hopefully wake it up quite a bit. Im gettin another 10 bolt rear end that has 4.11 gears in it. Im also gettin some cragar ss wheels on it. well tell me what you think.

Why would we call you lame? That is a nice looking ride. Best bet is to go by a salvage yard. Olds Cutlass should be the same and there are more of them around.

P.S. lower the rear, it's way too high.

I have to have the rear end jacked up so my tires dont rub. but when i get my cragars i'll have new tires and they'll be alot smaller tire. these tires are old tires off of a truck that just happend to be the right size for my stock buick rims so i put them on for the time bein.
