Part One of a 1956 Chevy Restoration at Wilson Auto Repair

A 1956 Chevrolet has made its way to our shop for a frame off restoration.  Its going to be a long process and we invite you to take a look at the work as we go along.

For the most part, this Chevy will undergo a lot of bodywork to get rid of all the rust and get it ready for paint.  Here are a few shots of it when it arrived.

You can see by these pictures the rust under the paint that we had to deal with.

We get straight to work removing all the rust.  If you are dealing with deep rust, often the only solution is to cut out the infected metal and replace it with fresh metal. If it is surface rust, we have a great article on how to remove the rust from your classic car and keep it from coming back.

We have the body off the frame and it is on its way for some paint stripping.

Here is a shot of the bare frame.

The firewall was completely stripped, and we got started on the bodywork.  After we were satisfied with the bodywork, the firewall was painted.

Here a some more pictures of the body getting worked off the frame.

Be sure to check back soon as we continue to restore this 1956 Chevrolet.
