Oh yeah, its gonna be licensed as a ND vehicle shortly. You can paint license plates to match the car, right? :D


Sure you can paint it any color you want, just make sure you have the right color when you take it to the DMV and hope if you ever get pulled over the cop doesn’t know the diff.


Fair enough.

I did score the "matching" green fender I talked about. Only had to buy the one side too. I needed trim for that fender too so this saves me the time to find it.

I've been signed up here maybe 5 years, figuered about time I made a post :p. I was diggin around and think I found a few more chrome pieces, like another right side front fender brow or whatever you call it. I will probably getting rid of a few other things like some of my engines and transmissions, will try to get em posted here first in the classifieds.  I figured I will find different stuff when it comes time to start building stuff again.

Got the '57 back in Fargo after we thrashed on it a little. Big thanks to Joel as he did an awesome job fixing my drivers window and replaced all the felt to make it nice and tight again. No rattles. Then he and a friend replaced my the drivers front fender with something that matched a little better. I got the wiper working again, still have to hook up the cables to the passenger side wiper transmission I purchased. Removed the rubber bumper bullets from the front bumper and installed the 210 pieces again, and fixed the back bumper 210 bumper bullet inserts as well. The front end still has some aligning to do, but its looking better steadily. Next is 57 Buick grille and Suedes drag plate. Would like to have matching rear bumper ends. One is Bel Air and one is 210....
