    cheers!

    thanks moon for starting thread on the old dog...tis nice to finally get it to you for its new engine/trans ,suspension,brakes etc...thanks for the good comments all...this is one ugly 57 ! she's solid enuf from the states last year,mildly rodded in the late 70's with red paint and fat racing stripes,mustard shagpile carpet,pontiac buckets... to be honest i quite liked the paint as it was now 30yrs old and had a nice patina...but,there was a hell of alot of panel damage all over and there was no way there would be enuf showing after repairs...so i hammered, pulled and smashed the panels into shape (ish) pooed up and rough sand...i aint no panel beater,but looks ok aslong as the sun aint out ! decided to de-trim the sides,smooth out boot holes,but keeping lock for now...wasnt sure what to do with grille,have a mint grille bar ang grille that i fitted but looked too nice...so what to do? decent tube or flat bar grille was 150-200 quid and would it look right? i decided to make my own,that way it would only be my time wasted if it looked ****e!the mock up i have made looks ok i think...all i have done inside is fitted original front split bench(from the parts car) that i chopped the feet off (well rotted)and welded the base and slide mech from the pontiac buckets,was well chuffed it worked first time and matching rear...have started sound proofing the floor with antivibe sound dampener,trans/propshaft well to be completed after trans/shifter is in...wifey got me a radio for xmas,looks identical to 57 specs but high power modern unit ,tasty bit of kit ...all the chrome work is rough pitted but solid,have much nicer/straigter chrome on parts car but looks well out of place on the old dog! with this one i am concentrating more on performance and useability...tis going to be my daily so no point getting too carried away wheels should be here soon,then the exterior is done (for now) and jeff,she aint chopped,probably the only thing at moon's that's not !!!
