1993 fleetwood. Burgundy. I dunno what the actual GM color code is off hand. There are a few rust spots but I can deal cause they almost match the paint. It looks as if it is damage only to the clear top coat where the oxidation is. Mostly the roof and trunk and a tiny bit on the hood.

Good looking rig. Been trying to figure out what s8nng8 means. The only thing I come up with is Satan's great. But hope that's not what it means

Rivets, yes 3/16 galvanized steel. Here's some better pics, but I'm telling ya, the pics suck compared to how it looks in person.

Looks good regardless. I love the vented look.

If the rivets go to hell, I've got small carriage bolts to go in.

I love carriage bolts... but how does one make a square hole in metal?

This whole bumper project was done with a dremel, a band saw, and a nylon plennishing hammer.
