I dug the roof panels out for the S10 and the Malibu out of my scrap pile and separated the skins from the bracing in each piece.

Played around a bit with the new quarter window glass.

I visited my local used auto parts store today. I like this store because they remove certain parts and have a large warehouse to store the parts they've removed. The counter guy allowed me to search through the shelves of glass for quarter windows that would match the cardboard pattern I'd brought. I found windows for an 84 Cougar. They are within an inch of being the same height as the black weather stripping for the chopped Malibu windows. They also match the curvature of the Malibu glass.

I had purchased a 55 Chevy gauge cluster a couple of years ago. It's a little more rounded at the top than is the 57 cluster, but I had intended to ditch the chrome bezel and to only use the glass anyhow.

Picked up a well-weathered 57 Chevy dash at the Houston Autorama swap meet for $20. It's just about two inches too narrow; I can widen it when I patch the speaker hole.
