Progress on the 57

There is color on the Belair at last. I am happy with the color. The body is now back on the frame. I love the rims but was not sure how they would look on the 57, how bout some feed back. I was afraid the 275/48/18 were going to be too big to fit but now I think I need somthing a bit larger.

The rims look just about right to me. Not too big and not too small. What color is it? It kind of looks like Black Saphirre which is a real deep blue. Nothing like fresh paint to get the enthusiasm going. It looks great

I remember when the 59 was at that stage.

Just dropping the freshly painted body on the frame sent me a message.

IT WILL GET DONE!!!

Looks great!

Get a fender bolted up and you'll see better how the wheels look.

I think they look good from what I've seen so far.
