Very nice! Not much beats a black/red color combination...that's what my '55 will be. My '62 Vette is black/black-too much of the original black interior was in too good of condition to replace. Looking back, I wish I would have changed it to red.

You've got a beautiful car, sir.

Thanks for all the nice comments, guys! That actually helps getting my motivation up a notch.

My buddy just finished his black 57 with an aluminum head 409. You wouldn't happen to have an extra hard top would you?
Jim, I actually am one of those guys that doesn't do anything more than store the hartop- I always drive with the top down. The hardtop is in pretty decent shape, and I actually bought a new red headliner for it, (not installed) but it needs new weatherstripping, as it's too hard and inflexible to set on a nice paint job. Send me a pm if he's interested.

I REALLY love that in-out combination. I just REALLY hope you don't paint the cove. I REALLY like the solid color best.
Mine is red with red/black interior (ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, I know, red/black interior is not correct).

That is way cool! Both cars! BTW, excellent choice in Crager SS rims, being a Crager SS man myself, lol.

The interior took me way longer than I would have thought. I polished all of the original stainless pieces and installed them on new repro panels. The curved piece fought me every inch of the way on both panels.

I also finally installed the grille:

Oh, and Tom- I have no intention of painting the cove, as this car replicates the one I had back in the 70's, which was all black.
