Peter Gonzales welding floor
And, a week later, here are pictures of the floor going in:
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!
