Lloyd, here is a running driving project here in South Carolina. HRP
I don't trust and wouldn't do business with anyone that doesn't have a secure website!
Hey Lloyd, how about a pic of your rockers? Someone might have a plan on how to make the patches. Also, I think at the cost of a floor pan plus shipping, I’d be investing in a bead roller and sheet metal. After all this isn’t a restoration, right? You just need functionality. Doesn’t need to be factory correct.
I don't need any rockers, just the patches behind the rear wheels. I have a bead roller, and I'm thinking that's what I'm gonna do on the floors. In front of my quarters is bent up, id put those patches in if i can find them. We'll see
This stuff on both sides
I can fix this fairly easy if i can't buy it
Go cut me some patch panels off of it lol
Ya, they are a bit rough. .
Lloyd, are you on the FB Elco page? Might be some resources.
No i don't Facebook. But i checked out some Elco forums, they are mostly later model cars.
Have you tried Classic Industries?
When direct to Sherman and its a no go. Clicked on your summit link and clicked to buy them and it said there will be a delay due to manufacturing and shipping lmao! Yeah, because Sherman isn't making them
Yeah they ain't got any, just pictures of them lol.
What in this pic needs to be replaced.
I’m I missing something?
Read what i said. I can fix it, but if i had a new panel I'd replace it. It's not as good as it looks to you.
That’s dang near mint.
Anthony hits cars with hammers
Here’s ya a paint scheme.
Lol so do I, 13 in my shop at the moment, not including my own, and one being brought from Huntington WVa at 5 today. Anybody want a job?
Pfft, 13 hammers. What a rookie. I have at least 50. Problem is I only can find one or two when needed.
New meaning to open casket?
I would come and help Lloyd but, work takes up so much of my time and makes me so tired.
He means he has 13 jobs and another one coming later today, not 13 hammers.
Love 60 Chevy’s. Always have , my parents had a new 60 impala stick six. Crocus Cream green interior. Did a lot of making out in that car, until I blew the rear end when I got excited that I got a date with my now wife. True Story!
Color me dumber than I look
I used Motor City Sheet Metal partial floor patches in mine. Hell of a lot cheaper than a full floor but not as pretty. I got mine from ebay but they are all over the internet. I used all 4. The full car floor not fitting an El Co seems unlikely. The Bel Air 4dr I cut up and my El Camino sure looked identical from the toe boards to the middle of the rear wheel houses. The only differences I noticed were brackets and stuff. Good luck finding the quarter patches. I need the driver's for my bucket.
Good for you! Never give up on a dream!
I got an email back from "black car auto parts" on the patch panels, they said they have the left side only. But they told me to reply by email if i want them and they'll give me payment instructions, i just deleted the email. I'll find what i need eventually.
