I too saw them at the springfield swap meet. I used to work for restoration world and fit these parts...even before i worked there. With my new job i really dont have the time to do that any longer. I knew they were having a problem with the seam and had seen the prototypes that would split trying to make it in one piece. The seam doesnt bother my too much i looked at them and it wouldnt take much to weld and metal finish out... especially since the "other" new 55 fenders actually are seemed up in that area too, they just finished them out...still need a little help but the tried. I just baught a 55 and another 57 210 sedan, i will run there sheetmetal on both cars.
