As I have posted a couple of times in other threads, I started this project 20 years ago. I found a '56 sunroof coupe sitting in dirt/bottom half of the car completely rusted away. I cut to top off (still in surprisingly good condition) and grafted it onto a '57 shell. I sold the car around 2001 and recently re-purchased it. I have made some progress the last couple of months and will try to post some photos as I go.

I have a lot more photos to upload, but I am getting an error message saying that the file size (even for one photo) is too large. Is there an easy fix to file size issue?

Filled in trim holes and bumper bracket holes. Decided to lower the mounting position of the license plate (built in LED light in the upper frame).
