Your build looks great. If you don't mind me asking - where did you get the carpet and headliner - the fit looks great.

The carpet is ACC. carpet I got it through Summit Racing. The headliner came from Roddoors.com It is one piece made of ABS. plastic Then had an upholstery shop cover it with material.I installed it my self. The upholstery will be getting done a few parts at a time and I will install. Keeps the truck here and i'm able to work on other parts of it.

Nice work. Interesting how your has a round face and mine has the rectangular and it's a 57 as well. I wonder what determined which radio your truck would have came with.

AFAIK the 57-60 only came with round radio's as an option. Any rectangular radio would have been installed by a previous owner sometime during its life.
