SHOWCASE

Frank did a fantastic job on the body work himself and took the car to a paint shop in Tampa.  After being promised he would get the car back in two weeks, it took more than a month.  Worse yet, they painted the car the wrong color!  Instead of the factorty original color you see on the car in this picture, they had painted it a light powder blue!

Needless to say, there were some very unhappy moments.  A couple weeks later, they repainted the car in base coat/clear coat and color sanded it to a beautiful finish.​

Typical area of rust in a '57 Chevy

There was about a half pound of bondo in each of the fenders. ​

The insie of the tailgate is painted and looks like it did the day it came from the factory. ​

It looks much better now!

The next step is to weld in the new rocker panels and floor.​

Tampa Bay Classic Chevy Club Tech Director Tom Dufour and Club Photographer Peter Gonzalez are right in thick of it!​
