My dad is usually a muscle car guy, but he wanted to do a "hot rod" for his next build, and he likes '56 Chevys. I had this one at my shop but he didn't want a 4 door, so I sold him on the idea of a 2 door conversion. This first pic was taken last Wednesday, first day in the shop. I already had doors and a front seat stashed away for a future conversion project, but we still needed door jambs, so I cut them out of this '55 at a local junkyard. Before anyone asks me "why didn't you just buy the whole '55 out of the junkyard and build that?" it was wasted. And I mean, really bad. Roof and drip rails rusted all the way through, firewall and floors all gone, doors twisted as you opened them. Even the jamb panels I cut out are going to need a fair amount of rust repair. It was a donor at best. I'd say I'm about 60 hours in, here's the driver's side, all put together but not finish welded yet. As you can see, the door is made up of 3 different doors welded together (2 four door front doors donated their bottoms). And here's the passenger side, which still needs some work to get the gaps right before I weld it tight.
