    Thanks, Crazy! It looks like I'm going to need a few days break now; after about 5 hours of being in the trunk yesterday my back is not too good today.

    Smile plymouth

     



    Nice article on how to do a plymouth. Will watch closely. I am negoiating for a 46 2 door. My concern is the bottom panels between the rear fender and trunk lid as they are rusted up pretty good and I am no body man. Not sure at this point how bad it is as all things have been done over the phone with email pics. May be into the trunk lip as well. I have seen new floor pans on ebay to redo the entire floor and I will probably need them as well. Good luck on your project. I have a 48 dodge pick up that is a current project. Other will be me my retirement present to me.

    Nice to meet you, Lee. Good luck on getting the 46; I've found good and bad about these cars. The good is that they're not as popular as Chevys and Fords of the 40's so you can buy the cars and used parts much cheaper than Chevys or Fords. The bad news is that they're not as popular as Chevys or Fords of the 40's so companies that make reproduction sheet metal are few and far between and they really get top dollar for them. But there are still a lot of donor cars out there; check Ebay and www.P15-D24.com for parts. Good luck, let me know if I can be of any help!

    Hope it helps some.
    That's a good site for metal shaping. metalmeet.com is another. Both sites have a lot of the same members.

    That's pretty much forgotten now, at least as often as I get on there I don't see much controversy anymore.

    Hey Pro, that is a good site, checked it out a little last night. Thanks for the info.
    Thanks for the compliment, Dwaynerz; I hope to get a little time on it this weekend. Been a crazy week at work, 5:30am to 8-9 at night everyday so far.

    It's possible; we'll see how far she gets this summer. I'm not ready to make another completion prediction on this one. I might drive up there and see yours, though. When do the shows start up there?

    Yeah, no kidding. My grandson is 3 and he keeps asking when we're going to the car show. That's becoming our thing together; hopefully we'll be building him a car someday. I got the patch on the other side fully welded in today, along with most of the trunk patch and several hours of grinding.

    Looks like a good days work Falcon!!! All I got done was a few more hours of block sanding and some time messin' with the hood on the '57...

    The panel work looks great!
