NOW time for me to get started and get my hands on it and start the restoration :cheesy:

at the truck and car shop, getting all the small things for it like door locks and the assembly manual



back from pomona, along with the guys i bought the motor im putting in it. they build derby cars, and when it comes to engines crazy white guys that build from home are best and cant be beat. theyre cars might not be that pretty, but run like a champ and kick ass







now at my buddies house where theyre going to dress it up really nice.

got the first accessory for it, skirts







and this friday met up with phil, guy in apple valley thats going to do the paint and body on my 59. so i finally got my hands on it, step 1, get that bondo off before it heads up to his house for the paint and body

remember i said almost half an inch of bondo, left a little patch so you can see





wasnt too worried because of condition of inside of quarters from trunk but was still worried about what was under all that bondo



not a damn thing, no rot so im very happy. look how the thing was down to bare metal, and the bottom of the quarters and rocker. and wings just had very few dings







thats what was done today, other side has less bondo than this side so im not worried. this was today step 1 day 1. ill post as i move along with it. as we speak the motor is getting done and on thurs goes out to paint and body and i get it back in 30 days. going with chevy blue body and white top and roof. ill keep posting till its completely done :yes:

i accept tips
seriously you hooked me up. i have homeboys with 59s that came by yesterday cause they didnt believe there was nothing under the bondo. said in that condition i should have really paid about 12 atleast, not 8. one thing tho bro, hope its laying there or you have an extra one or can get me one. went thru all the trim, from the whole car its just missing one piece, one of the back inerior side panels trim that follows the one going from the door. its like a small curved spear thats on the back side panel. not the armrest one but the one on the panel above it. if its not layiing around out there, let me know if you can get another one or where i can get it. again thanks bro

First of I like to say congratulations to the 59, I had my eyes on it for a while but I was to hesitant and since I live to far away I never had an opportunity to go check it out in person...

The previous owner wrote it was solid but if he would have taken more pics of all the places that you covered I think that the car would have been sold much faster cause it looks real solid!
