1972 Firebird - Rubber Nose
The old bird's beak was tattered and worn but our craftsman will hone her back into reality.
The splash pan, grills and lights are pretty much wasted.
As seen the original rubber nose fits badly, the Texas sun baked her out of alignment.
Big gap in the middle.
Large gap from one side to the other.
We found an NOS rubber nose. She still had some problems but nothing like the original. As seen some rubber repairs were performed.
Jeff gets in the act and does his " secret " rubber nose resto technique he formulated in the late 80s
Ready for flexible primers and blocking.
Hi- build primer was applied and some block sanding was done so she is coming around.
Fits like a glove.
All pre-fitted, take a look at the finished photos. HI-Impact to the Max.
