    Don't read anything into that.. When I bought the 'painted body', the sheet metal was attached and pretty well aligned. I left the doors and hood attached, but removed the fenders, rad support and inner fenders to facilitate getting the body mounted to the custom frame (and I had to trim the bottom of the inner fenders to clear the suspension. Another complicating factor considered was that I had NO MORE storage place for the hood that wouldn't get it scratched up..

    I'm just about to the point of reattaching the front sheet metal...

    My brain just kicked in a 55-57 is one of the few cars that leaving the hood on is even possible when removing those parts. Most cars the hood hinge bolts to fender or inner fender.
