Welcome Back John.

I have a feeling your progress would probably inspire me to dust off my Belair, and maybe get started on it again...

Looks like a year has passed since the last update (9/2011). Hope he didn't get hung up again.

Go ahead and post photos!

I've looked at a lot of your projects and work. I am so impressed and I have learned so much. Your talents and knowledge are unparalleled.

Thank you all again for your comments and hanging in there with me, it really has given me an overwhelming desire to get back to work on the Belle.

The Rust Bucket '57 Chevy made me think that even I can perform bodywork. It gave me the guts to buy a rust bucket '56 Chevy 2-door sedan that I intend to restore as soon my garage is ready.
Regards from Brazil!
