Since yesterday was 57 deg F (very warm for Michigan in February) AND both of my sons happen to be home I decided to put them to work pushing my '57 Golden Hawk project outside so I could clean the garage. I've got the basic chassis and suspension work done. The wheels and tires are just for rolling it around. I'm currently working on the body shell stripping paint and making some metal repairs. It's supposed to be cold again tomorrow but the garage is now clean so I will turn the heat back on and get return to work on the trunk area.

Very nice - I like your car!! As you can see in my own thread ".... first questions before I start ...." I am currently in the process of restoring a 54 Champion hardtop.
You seem a lot more experience than myself (I am a doctor and this is my first time working on a car!!). Looking forward to seeing more pictures of your project!

Very ambitious Neil. It'll be worth it in the long run.

We have recently brought home our '57 GH, after 2 years of resto work involving me and 2 other "experts".
Now we are into the final detail phase, that should be done in 5 to 6 weeks.
Seeing the stage that your project is in, reminds me of the frustration of rust damage that I had to deal with.
Thank God for the Vendors, Ebay, The Forum, many other sites, and my "PEACE OF MIND" for getting us through that phase.
......Take your time, be patient, stay with the Forum, and don't be shy on asking for advice.
Thank you very much for saving another '57 GH............
