Looks great! What did you use to cover the chrome trim and grey parts of the bumper?
I used 3M glossy blackout tape around the windows and the chrome piece that runs into the tail lights. To get those pieces right, I had to disassemble the tail light and remove the chrome pieces and black out those out separately then reassemble. The grey parts of the TourX front bumper weren’t reused when I put the Sportback nose on it. I did however black out the grey piece on the lower rear bumper by masking it off and spraying it with 3 coats of black plasti dip and then two coats of their “glossifier” and it is about as close to a dead match of the surrounding piece as you can get.

Well done! Are the wheels 19" or 20"?
They are factory 20” Lacrosse wheels. I looked at several types of aftermarket wheels, many of which would’ve looked great on the car, but in the end I was looking to blend American and Euro touring cues and those OEM wheels just kept coming back to me. I really wanted it to look like something that could’ve been, for the most part, bought from a dealership. RoRi had the same style on his car at one time, but they were powder coated darker and that’s where the original idea came from.

First, I would like to thank @RoRi for the ideas and doing all the initial legwork to show us how good these cars can look and @Zaxer for showing how to to swap out the nose and pushing me over the edge to tackle this project.

This is my version of a Buick Touring Wagon.

Thanks @Zaxer. Did you get the bottom Sportback trim piece over the paint cut off? It took me about 15 minutes to cut it with an air saw and about that long again to true the edge with a soft sanding pad.

I am going to do the front and back at the same time - awaiting some touch up paint that has been backed up for weeks...just got the shipping notice Friday. I will post pics on my sportback swap thread once I get ‘er done...I will also use a air jigsaw - much better idea vs dremel!
