    Hello,

    I got deleted today and I am back to try this again.

    I purchased this 54 Chevy 210 on November 2017. The body was in good shape with hardly no rust. At this point there is no body filler on the car. Everything was in tact with nothing missing. car 2.jpg 54 chevy interior.jpg

    Once I got it home I started taking it apart.

    I found a rust hole on the passenger side front floor panel that I am going to cut out and replace with a new EMS floor pan.

    I removed the front clip to be able to pull the motor and trans easier.

    After that I removed the frame from the body.

    I just recently order some parts from Gambino Kustoms and waiting for them to come in. Theses are the parts below what I'll be installing coming up hopefully soon.

    Thanks yeah I picked it up in North Texas and I’m the 5th owner since 54. I have the original title and it hasn’t been on the road since 72. 45 yrs is a long time.

    Well I started on the seats. I discovered they had some old seat covers on the seats and wanted to see the condition underneath. After taking the seat covers off of course the foam was bad and needed to be replaced. Here is some pictures of the progress.

    I will probably be replacing all foam before I recover them.

    I couldn’t wait...I had to get out to the garage and try my new Eastwood Contour SCT on a Side skirt on my 54. Less than 10 mins here is the results. I didn’t really have to work and push hard. I let the tool do the work. [​IMG]

    That's Crazy! Does it kick up much dust? How's the Pad look afterwards?

    It doesn’t really kick up a lot of dust. The pad still looks brand new.
