I've been working on my '57 Ford 2dr. Custom off and on for about 6 years now. It's my first build, so I spend alot of time on forums getting help and advise, and helping when I can. The first thing I figured out when I started "fixing up" my car, was that I wouldn't be able to do it right and keep it a driver while it was being worked on. The second thing I figured out was if it was going to be done well enough to make me happy, I'd have to learn to do it myself because I couldn't afford to pay someone to do it. I'm hoping to have it done except for the drivetrain by the spring..rebuilding a house at the same time seems to get in the way though.
