Hi Craig

I used this mob for my 58 (Not a bad fit)
A little pricey, but two of us split the postage

Yeah I already looked at their site tonight. From what I can see they look like a good panel. my panels need to be a bit bigger but I suppose I could add bits to them for the roll at the front.

Anyone local would be a big ask but I will ask all the same.

You say pricey? what did they cost landed? how long ago? and how long did it take to get them here?

I had a ring around  and located a pair of good originals for $100 yesterday.

Chevy are the same pressing and RHD sedans have less braces so were easier to remove.

Pics later when my internet speed is back up, (currently on 64 kbs)

i recently (3 weeks ago) got a toe board for a 59 from www.classicfabrication.com. it cost me $120 aust landed. i still had to do some small mods to make it fit. but you will always have to do some. Don't use classicparts4u on ebay. they are cheap but don't ship to Australia and never return emails.

Unfortunately this rust wasnt known until the trimmer pulled my interior to bits. the floors seemed solid when I bought it because the rust had only eaten through the floor where there is a brace and there was a Texas number plate silconed over the hole so from above the floors seemed solid.

On the plus side I now have two TX plates to hang on the garage wall  ::)

Yeah they do, if it werent for the brace I would have seen it before I bought it and probably would have still bought the car but it would have given me haggling space, it would have been nice to have been able to fix this while the rest of the body was being done at home rather than at the trimmers but that's life with an old car huh?

I have been trying to get on here for a while but the site has been down for some reason,

This is where I am up to now.

This floor is really mostly welded in but I dont have a pic of it done. This was just before I welded the brace under the floor which is sitting on top

Also my trim rings and caps turned up last week
