My 57 Chevy - FTO

At last I've got a few pics of my 57 Chevy worth posting !
I waited 20 years to buy it & probably 5 more before I can drive it. A dream that is at last coming true.

Thanks to all who have helped me along the way (I needed it)

As I bought it 4 1/2 years ago

Had loads of metalwork inc new boot floor inc mini tubs.

Hey, at last this week I got paint :shock::tup::D:D:D

Custom Rod gauges, finished 2 years ago as inspiration to finish the car.

This is how it should (hopefully) look, when all the jigsaw puzzle goes back together. (paints darker than this, in the flesh (er metal !)


Hopefully post a few more soon.

The inserts were off my my car, as his were damaged. yeah would be nice to arrange a Tri chevy meet only at Brighton sea front, (merdira drive) one hot summers day.
Would be a awesome event, one day maybe :hit:
