I also painted both bumpers this afternoon since the weather was warm to paint.
I going to use the black base paint and the 2k clear gloss coat, but I already started with Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover black Paint+Primer. I already have given 3 coats, and I might give it another coat to fill in some pin spots.

I finally assemble the parts back onto the car, but I'm missing to locate one large rubber flap that fits underneath.
I guess I have to look at the Buick illustrated to see where and how it's get bolted, but for now you can see my progress

yea I know I'm trying to do the things that needs to be done in warm weather
The good thing , here in South Carolina the warm climate is here for a couple of week if not more.
All I'm doing are the maintenance work, and the last thing to do is to replace the front inner, and outer bearings and seals.

Looks great. I think gbody has that rubber flap.
Thanks, but I'm not missing the flap I have the rubber flap and I just need to find the location to put back in it's location

Did you find another header panel, or did you repair the original one?

It has been almost a year and a half since this thread has seen the light of day.

Is there a new,quality header panel out there?

My body shop guy worked over my regular Regal header panel to hide the hood ornament hole even better. It looks great but there are still internal cracks and numerous repairs.

Any updates on new header panels being made?? Any upcoming releases? Sherman closed :confused: - so much happens when I sleep. I always need the one part that only three are known to exist in a far off universe, but for every other car its almost free, I found something for $400+ ........is that it??

Whoever makes a quality piece will sell a whole bunch, I'm surprised Year One doesn't get off their ass and develop one, lots of G-bodies out there.

I was thinking the same about Year One , and GBodyparts. I seen a thread awhile back where a member contacted OPGI.COM via Phone , and got a lead where to purchase header panel.
