Sort of a pointless thread about "look at the car in my driveway I'm working on". This belongs to my friend Edgar, also a HAMBer "Fermiumhalo" from Hillside NJ. Met him awhile ago and decided he wanted some things done. All in all its a nice car, but had some seriously shoddy work done in the past. (IE ill fitting rockers placed over what was left of the rotted factory rockers w/ no inner rocker replacement) Heres what we start with... Some serious rot behind the parking light area... So far, just fixed the hood...cut it out and found a similar contour on a junk fender. After some hammering and dollying it lined up pretty well. Got rid of some trunk emblems... Shaved some door handles. Lowered the stock tail lites, I love that look. And fixed that dreaded contour of the grill shell. Going to seam it up further after the hood is on. I aligned it prior and will finish to make sure its all flush later. Here is teh rocker shot. The previous owner (one of em) I guess decided some inner rocker was better than no inner rocker! This is acually just HVAC galvanized crap bent on a 90 degree angle and bolted in! Its getting new inner rockers and Edgar already bought some Green Mountain outers. MAAAN those suckers are nice! You can see in the pic where the guy just beat the stock rocker (what was left) down with a hammer and brazed on some garbage replacement units. It's not my car but I kind of see this going as a late 50s kid-in-high-school who had some bucks type look. Its got some nice 57 Caddys and Coker wide whites going on it, as well as a flathead with 3 speed overdrive. If anyone has a front seat for one of these, gimme a PM. Well, thanks for looking!
