Please scroll down to click on links to each photo.

I had some pinstriping done by a Dr. Ru (drrupinstriping.com) to finish off the old girl. I had it done while I had the body shop paint and re-apply the 1/4" moulding inset in the rear bumper. Boy was that a tedious task to remove it from a donor car. I actually removed some of Dr. Ru's work to make it less embellished (see the two photos of the trunk). I also applied badges to the front doors even though Pontiac did not start this practice until 1992, I believe. Apologies to the purists in this forum.

I can't say for anyone else, but the pics appear to be thumbnails, and me being old and don't see so well, can't really appreciate the work. - BC

EDIT: 1987 - 1991 is my favorite FWD Bonneville body. - BC

I guess I am a little computer challenged (not to mention everything else). At least this link gives bigger photos. As I stated above, I removed about 20% of the pin striping. Dr. Ru seemed to like to paint extra "loops". The pics of the trunk key area so the extra embellishment. Oh well, you can never tell a true "artiste" how to do their job. I am grateful for lacquer thinner. I applied the "SSE Bonneville" badges to the front doors. Yeah, I know I had one on the trunk but I like how Pontiac put them on the doors in later years.


I clicked on your link and the following message greeted me:

I'm not particularly fond of the little stars but otherwise it looks great. Great example from that generation! I'd like to see more pics of the whole car!
