Finally getting the Silver Bullet rewired!
Sun Sep 06, 2015 10:45 am by starchief_59

After that, I'm going to pull the motor and repaint it and install the freeze plugs that popped out when it froze, detail the engine bay and then I'm going to go through the brakes and see why …

Hey Fellas, new here, I'll do an official intro in a bit. Was just wondering about the best place to get floor pans and trunk pans/braces for a 59 Strato-Chief. It's a 2 door. The trunk has me a bit perplexed(floors are easier to find?). Seems like a Biscayne is the same? Any info on what year/model chevy etc. will work is also greatly appreciated. Thanks, pics coming soon
