Just delivered this 57 Bel Air to the owner last week after a 10 month frame of restoration. Now restoring a 57 nomad for the same owner. Check out my website for more cars that I have done.   http://www.classicautorestore.com

OK sorry I haven't posted my progress lately. I have painted the roof , both quarters and cowl. I have also pulled the rear suspension, fuel tank and subframe. Everything have been sandblasted and painted with por 15. The underside was cleaned ( 1 week of scraping) and painted base coat clearcoat black. I have installed the subframe back in the car with all new energy suspension components (front and rear). The rear end and fuel tank will be installed by wed. Waiting on the 400 engine to get finished soon.

The stripe is midnight blue in the middle and black surrounding it. I got the rear bumper, tailights and rear fender flares installed today.
Dave are you going to the BOP in old town on the 24th?
