So I have this '57 hardtop that the Wife and I picked up 20 yrs ago for $800. The usual rust (think "57 rust bucket"). The car has always been put on the back burner though, while all else in life (family, kids, school, etc) took priority. Over the years, I would look at the car and poke here or there, look at all the rust, get discouraged and walk away, come back later and cut out something and weld in a patch, etc. This car is a basket case and I'm looking at about $25K to do the build, doing all the work myself. Anyway, at 51 y/o, I figured I better get serious about the car while I still have time I have a full floor, inner/outer quarters, deck panel, inner roof structure and drip rails, and roof skin. Doors will likely get reskinned too. Right now, the "car" is on jackstands and consists of a chassis with a firewall/dash/roof frame (minus skin), and the doors still hung on there. Hey, at least the one-piece frame is solid hehe. Wish me luck...failure is not an option. I'll post pics if I can figure out how to get under the filesize limit.
