Crestliner Chest w/ Buick Grill Center and Working Tailights!May 28th, 2011 in member junk
This is actually one of the first pieces I did. The chest came from a dealer who had it, but it was too bad to restore. Too bad to restore = PERFECT for what we do, since it ends up distressed with multiple layers of paint anyway.
The dark blue is actually about 6 different shades of blue, while the light blue is 4 different colors. I've slowly developed this technique of layer that provides an end product, after sanding, that looks like an original patina, aged and oxidized over the years like the real car. I also try to match the colors to the actual year of vehicle Im focused on.
The Buick grill center bar was found, along with the tailights, in Charleston, WV at a flea market. I like to never got the TSA to let me carry it on board with me!
The tailights light and its a totally functional chest for the bedroom, man cave or entry of an office.
