Hello fellow Oregonian, sorry for your loss. That’s one nice 1957 Chevy convertible.

In addition to the brake upgrade which you are doing (or have done), don't forget to check the AGE of your tires, and probably the shocks need replacing as well if the car sat for a long time. Check all your fluids (rear end, trans, etc) and change the oil/filter... and if you aren't familiar with old cars, the '57 has greasable joints that will need regular greasing!
