Updating the rear brake conversion. the jury had not come back with a unanimous decision. If I had it to do over again, I would never had purchased the kit with the parking brakes built into the calipers. Not only was the park brake not releasing at times, but you have to use it often to keep the rear brakes adjusted. I jerked the calipers off and put a set of GM non park brake calipers on, and got rid of all the cable crap. I will be installing an electric brake lock for the rear and moving my hydraulic brake light switch to operate on the front plumbing. Easier for me for what I have to contend with.

Looking sharp Rich. I agree- drop the flames- much better without them.

Add my vote to leave without the flames. The car looks great, I thing the grey is a good color for that car. Great job Rich.

10/4 the concave faces towards the rubber bushing. Good luck putting the car back on the frame.

Hershey has been outstanding as expected.  Found the parts for the police car across five booths but when it came to the Del Rio, I only scored the horn ring ($20).  Never found the steering wheel so that will be a hunt for the winter unless someone reading this has one they want to sell.   That said, I did make half a dozen good contacts for parts so hopefully I can round out whats missing by UPS.  Saw one 1956/7 (don't remember) 4-door Ranch Wagon being sold in the car corral ($42,000) and one 1957 in the Chocolate field.  An owner gave me the contact for a close reproduction of the material on the back of the 3rd row seat.  I'll post a contact listing from this show in a later post along with my take on what I found out about them.  Ford hubcaps  were everywhere for $45-$120/set and I found every logo piece except the rear door pull.  Jacks were easy to find as was door hardware but no door skins. 

But first need to get it disassembled.

Looking for a pair of rear arm rests w ash tray for a Ranchwagon. No need for the actual trays if you don't have them.

We are experts in putting stuff on, taking back off, and putting back on again.

We might be related, lol.

I would not do the flames.Your car is beautiful as it is now.Less is more.

totally agree on this, your car has such an elegant look right now that if anything I'd be adding just a very very very limited amount of pinstriping. but do drop the front end. with the exhaust sticking out as PS'ed you'd be setting off car alarms all over the place.

If you're going to switch away from yellow consider a really HOT orange, the 3 american oems had a few and Ford has had a few lately on the Shelby and mustang GT. The 2015 stang has one that is killer.

Am told that its a very small percentage of people that will buy a yellow car new or used. I love yellow cars only drawback to them is they seem to attract hornets by the dozen.
