    Your preparatory work looks great! Lots of work done.
    BTW, I like the bin/rack system on the wall in your shop (and with labels so you can narrow down which bin to look in first).

    That is a GREAT book - I could not have rebuilt my 57 without it. His descriptions and accompanying pictures are hugely helpful. The only failing is the lack of an index, so I have lots of...

    Very cool pic, and car! I don't recall if I ever saw one of those, or maybe at the time was just unappreciative. I find a number of cars that I just looked past in the old days, I now appreciate.

    Hi Brian,
    Love to see a pic (or two) of the Merc! Great idea on your setup to paint both sides of the door - you continue to think outside of the box, and to innovate.

    Tail Light Grommet

    Hi Bama,
    I didn't remember any issues when I installed the tail light grommets on my 57 2-dr hardtop, so I went out to see what that area looks like on my car:

    Speedo lube

    Hi,
    Does anyone know if for a 57 Chevy, the speedo has to be removed from the cluster to access the mini-freeze plug to lube the speedo drive?
