My '55 Chevy BelAir Blog From One Chevy Tri-Five Enthusiast To Another!

Just a little trim around the edges

It was so nerve wracking, for me at least. The reason it stressed me was because the screws holding the trim to the doors are so rusty that they would not come loose by ordinary means. So I had to drill and grind them out and was getting so close to the very old and “expensive” pieces of trim. If I went too far, I’d be searching for some replacement parts. Luckily that was not the case! As you can see from the picture below, under the trim is the original white paint from when the car was painted in the factory! Who ever did the Coral and Gray paint job years later just masked off the trim and painted it like that.
