Hello,
My name is Rudy and my dad and I are in the process of putting together a 1957 2dr hardtop. We are just about done with the body work and we should be taking it to the paint shop in the middle of May. Once I get my camera repaired I will try and post some pictures.

Rudy -- what do you mean "putting together?" Have you done a full frame-off restoration or what? Sounds pretty exciting, don't stop with the details!

2dr hardtop

Yes, we have removed the body from the frame. Sand blasted the entire frame and repainted it. I wish I would have powder coated it, but we didn't. We have changed the the front brakes to disc with 2" drop spindles. Once we have the firewall painted I can finish routing the brake lines. This is our first restoration project that we have attempted! We never knew it was so much work. But it is very interesting. We are learning alot as we go, but still have a lot to learn.

Thanks Rudy
