As you said, they're probably anxious to get it on out as well. Any changes from the paint scheme?
Thanks for the updates.

Finally, this week has seen the windows all removed for painting, the door hardware and doors have all been removed and I am told the car, fenders, hood and deck lid are ready for the paint booth.  So I'm not 100% positive, but pretty sure the paint booth is not far off.  If it goes into the booth this Friday I won't be around, as Rick and I will be at the WinterNationals.  But, I'll be back at Santini's on Monday with my trusty camera.  I'm sure he will be glad to see me and my camera gone eventually.  I'll still have plenty of work left to do before the car is back on the road and/or at car shows. Stay tuned for more episodes.

About a week later, the bumpers were back from being straightened and de-chromed.  Santini delivered them over to Wheeler's Speed Shop to have the bumper bolts removed and converted into behind the bumper studs for mounting to the bumper brackets and to have some half moon cuts done on the rear bumper for the exhaust tips.   Wheeler?s shop was busy doing some really nice custom work on the frame for a 1940?s Woody.  I took a couple of shots of the Art Morrison chassis and the 427 small block Ford going into the woody. Like I said they do really nice custom work.  At one point I was thinking about having Wheelers graft a 56 Crown Vic top and B pillar onto my 57 and having the only 57 Crown Vic around, but the cost estimate was prohibitive.  Oh well, I'll just have to settle for a running 57 Custom 300 which isn't all that bad.

Well Guys it's time to give another update.  Lots has been going on, but the car is still not in the paint booth.  But, I think it will start before the 1 year anniversary of the 57's Valentines Day Massacre (accident).  In mid-January the 57 was being taped up for some final primer spray and the fender wells and bumper brackets were back from being powder coated.  The passenger side still needed some final sanding prep around the old battery box area.

Jim...here's a link to the Hamb thread I started. Starting to get some responses there from the '56 guys, and one who has a new set of Crites he'll sell.
