  1. Well I still have a lot of work to do on getting the door fitted but with all of the metal work that had to be done on this side with the quarter and rockers I am pretty happy with where we are starting with the first fit.
  2. Shaved the door handle on the passenger side today
  3. Lance, I am hoping to have it done by June 2023 in time to go to the back to the 50s car show in Minnesota. My progress more than likely is going to start slowing down because I’m going to be getting into the expensive part of the build
  4. We hoped to have the car in epoxy primer by May but my wife decided to blow the motor up in her car so I am now a month behind. Never the less we got it sealed last weekend. This is the first car I have ever painted myself, its not bad but, I have a lot of practicing to do before I attempt to shoot it with color. I still have a lot of body work to do especially on the drivers rear quarter and fender but the car is sealed and i do not have to worry about rust anymore.
  5. Floor and firewall seam sealed and painted. Starting to work on location of air condition and heating unit under the dash
  6. It has been awhile since I have posted any pictures. Here are the photos for the 57 Oldsmobile dash. It turned out nice. I took the wings off of the Buick dash and grafted them into the Oldsmobile dash after we got it centered and attached to the car. A lot of cutting, trimming, fitting left to go but, I should be able to use the original Buick window trim with some modification for the placement of the clock from the Oldsmobile.
  7. Rodney More than likely I will pull the fresh air hidden from behind the grill and duct it into the cabin behind the inner fender wells
  8. I am getting pretty close to putting this thing in primer
  9. Lance Where are they different. I am cutting it up to graft into a 57 Olds dash to make up for the width difference.
  10. I am looking for the top passenger side Sheetmetal cover for a 1957 Buick Roadmaster Dashboard. If anyone could point me in the right direction in finding one I would appreciate it.
  11. Well it has been awhile since I have posted any pictures or progress on the Buick. So here is the update of where we are at today. Inner and outer rockers have been replaced, drivers side floor pan replaced and repaired, all drivers side body mounts rebuilt, both lower quarters replaced, both inner and outer wheel wells repaired, trunk pan repaired, both rear body mounts rebuilt, firewall shaved clean, cowl sealed up, bottom side of the entire floor pan seam sealed and coated with bedliner, inside of the roof stripped and painted grey. Today I am going to finish sanding the firewall and start to remove the bracing inside of the car so we can start fitting the 57 olds dash into the car. I hope you guys like the pictures and don't be to mad at me for cutting this car up.
  12. Made some more progress over the last few weeks. I now have a solid car again. inner and outer rockers, quarter panel, and passenger side rear wheel well have been replaced. The wheel wells were quite the job but I think they have turned out great from where I started.
  13. We knew going into this weekend we were going to be in for a difficult job rebuilding the drivers side inner fender. We didn't quite get to where we wanted to be this weekend but, all in all it was fairly successful. The driver's side is at least workable and should be ready to be tacked into it's final place the next time we work on it. I went with 16ga steel for the replacement panel so it should be pretty solid once it is complete. And on the brighter side at least I have a template for the other side of the car.
