I bought a 57 delivery from Fred(OldFart) here on tri-five a few month ago. Well It is time the start playing with it now that my wife 57 is almost finished( she is sewing up her upholstery). The delivery had a few rust issues so I decided to use my 57 4-dr that was being converted to a 2-dr to help out the build. I will be using the windsheild opening ,cowl,dash and floor from the 4-dr car. Also after the conversion is done I will finish the striaght axle conversion as I want it to be a straight axle car. So anyway me and my wife went to the shop this morning and while i was taking another 57 apart for paint. my wife got the "parts" car ready for me. Here are some start up pics.

I am getting a rear roof section with hinges ,etc from member classicchevy. The rear roof and upper jamb area is going to be delt with as soon as I make the main body structurally sound. Tim

Here is a preview of what i been up to . I will post more pic soon as I get it fitted and welded up. I braced the shell up with what ever i could find around the shop to keep the costs down(it is mine so..), So it looks a bit crude but it worked. Tim

Happy new year!!

Hi Tim from Horst the guy who sold you the rear bumper for your wifes car.

Big project. Doing a nice job.
I have a pair of 150 2 door rear quarter moldings if you still need them.
I dont have the short door ones, but they are easy to find.
Send me an email.
