    Good news went through the whole car and fixed all the wiring and everything is working great now ..fixed the air ride and cleaned up and re routed alot of the wires .. car runs well but still a few little issues before I will know 100 % if everything is good for the ignition system ... my goal is to get these brakes bleed the rest of the way and I'll be able to test drive it then take it for alinement and hopefully drive it to a show before the end of the season ...Also got alot of stuff moved into the new wearhouse so I will actually have some room and will.be back on track shooting for the car to be almost complete next season

    Started the rear quarter .. got the bottom rear cut out and started to cut the whole bottom across then I realized that alot of the areas were not as bad as we thought so I only cut out a couple inch piece ...all the other areas around the wheel lip that looked bad ended up being dents from the previous owner using pliers to bend the inner part of the lip up to fit 22s. ..

    Filled the holes in the rear and started cleaning up the 59 caddy light mounts I made a few yrs ago ... Also welded up the old body seems and got them grinned down and still need to do one more pass to build up the passenger side to make the gap right for the trunk seam

    Ok well had the car out before the end of last year and the steering box leaked so it's getting sent back.... Part of the problem is the headers touched it and got it and the starter to hot so I'm trying to find manifolds that will work with the bracket I made for the alternator.. And lights came on but stayed on hahaha so there is some things I have to go through but I'm working on the car and have a 6 week deadline to at least drive it to a show.... Had a bad dent in the rear quarter but I got it out mostly and I also have a good size leak on the back of the tranny so I got the seal so we will see

    ...that would be correct...as I said before, if it/they fit a 1960 they should also fit your '59.

    Update on the car so far. Haven't had time to do much but shipped the steering box out and it should be back by Monday the only issues is some of the washers that have a cone shape broke. They are cast and idk if I can use flat washers or if that will be a big deal. Only one broke I believe and I'm going to try to get some work done on it tonight and my days off this week for sure

    Never heard of them I know I have had people suggest places before but everything was far away but it looks like I will have to have then shipped if I'm gonna find any. I was gonna look into some 57 Plymouth ones and see if I can make them work because they have to make those

    I called and the company said it requires a mini starter but I could not get one as you remember so idk if that is something that actually needs to be changed or not. Still waiting on a reply on the other forum Would the 60 have the same set up as my 59 for trans and motor and what not

    Shouldn't be any external differences between a '59 BB & tranny vs a '60.

    Ok because I can't bet a short starter or any starter at all only the stock one so that's what worries me
