Hi everyone,
 I'm new to this forum and it looks like an easier one to use than some of the other ones. I'm building a '57 Chev. Bel-Air 2dr. hdtp. and I'm about 50% done. I'll be sending pics as soon as I get it out of the body/paint shop. I had added a '94 C4 vette suspension on the original frame using Paul Newman's company,
"Car Creations Inc". It has a Dana 44 pumpkin with a 392 pinion gear. I added BAER brakes along with a magnum T-56 6-speed manual. Its being painted a 2011 toyota tacoma steelridge blue. I also added a used 2010 LS3. Right now, I'm wiring the entire car using the Autowire company. Perhaps anybody out there can tell me whether you can put the '55 Chev. Bel-Air headliner chrome bows into a '57 Chev.? I'm assuming that the interior roof area is the same in the '55 as in the '57? Do you need special hooks or parts to connect the bows to the interior roof frame?
I appreciate any answers. Great forum!  Laugh
