I finally had some time to clean up the inside of the 210 and get some rust inhibiting paint down. Also bought some new (to me) rims and tires.





I decided to paint the inside door trim all black too since the previous owner have the seats all done in black.





I plan on putting some insulation down and then blakk carpet in.

They are used to me here BigDaddy! That spot on the side of my drive has had a 56' Bel Air, my 57' Tourquoise Bel Air, a 57' T-bird, and now this one. They all pretty much looked like this one too.

Out here people are more concerned about lawns looking like crap due to for-closures than my cars I think.

****, you work fast! lookin real good.:tu
Thanks David! Just a note for all to know. I met David a couple weeks ago and found out he was a peace officer and therefor qualified to do a vehicle ID verification on this car. He came and did so for me last week. I have an appt at DMV on the 12th to finish the registration on it.

By the way, he's a pretty cool guy too. Pretty much like most of those on TriFive.

I didn't realize you had a second one....Looks like a real solid car. Glad you're finding time to do another "gem".:D

Thanks Dwight. It was for sale and I decided I could save it, fix it up and resell it. It's another rust free California car so I just had to do it. If it would have meant welding I would have thought twice.

Another update picture.

Today my morning was spent on putting the front of the car back together. The fenders are bolted on and I re-installed a lot of the panels that I cleaned and painted. Looks better than my 57' Turquoise engine compartment now. :happy0030:

Looks good. What did you use to paint the interior and and engine compartment?? Rustoleum?? How did you apply it??
Yes, is was Rustoleum High Performance Protective Enamel. I brushed it on fairly heavy. I will now put down insulation before laying carpet.
