When I replaced the rotted out tailpan on my 55, I made sure the trunk lid was mounted with the gaps the way I wanted them before I cut out the remnants of the old one. I then used the trunklid as a guide to get the tailpan located correctly. Seemed to work well. Hope this helps.

Dave he has learned some hard lessons and had to do some work more than once so learn from his mistakes if you can. He hasn`t updated lately due to some family health problems, so the 57 has been on the back burner.

That is why I set the body back on the chassis so that I can square everything back up and brace it. I also copied his plans for the rotisery. I've got to pour my new floor and then I'll be building on for it. I'd love to be able to get a DVD of his web site for reference.
