    The black and white 57 in the first photo is my older Brother Bob's 57. He's owned it since 1968 and did a full restoration a few years ago. Here's some photos from around 1970.

Took me a couple of years, trial and error and a lot of help from my friends. Even my parents were highly supportive in this adventure. Thanks to everyone. It's been a wonderful ride all these years.

    You gotta love phosphoric acid! [​IMG][​IMG]
    I’m hoping to get it a little more shiny. We shall see.

    Yes and no. I spent a bunch of money this past winter in my suspension parts and I took a bunch of stuff apart in preparation for media blasting. However; our Central Valley California weather has been a little wet to be blasting. Not to mention I’ve been wiring my garage. Is that enough excuses yet? Lol. I’ll post some pictures as soon as I have some progress. Thanks for the motivation!
