bought some "potential" seats from a 2004 Cadillac Deville.

Over the winter I will decide. I had to grab these before someone else did, I got the fronts, backs, console and seat belts for 160$ out the door...

Power leather even heated seats. They have the computer attached. and the console has a fan in the back for the passengers... cant be strong though...

Oh and they have cigarette lighter plug ins at the bottom also. I can easily sell them for more than I paid if i dont use them.

I am thinking turquoise around the outside, blue/pattern in the centers.  When the console is set correctly is almost looks like a bench seat.  I will bump up the cushion a bit also, although these are pretty comfortable already.

So I get safety, comfort and functionality while giving up originality.  I can actually use lap belts, head rests also in the back seat and comfort if I put them in.

okay consolidating projects... I think its going to be a 57/58 regal lancer... Willow Green on White... or White on Willow Green...

I will keep the 57 front end I guess? You can swap at will.

I think I like the 58 front end better

Just a little rot going on there If you have a Regal Lancer, it would be better to keep the trim with the car. But a willow green Regal does look pretty good. One thing I don't like about the Regal is the hooded headlight chrome from the '58 Windsor. I think it looks a lot better with the standard Dodge trim. I recently found out that the headlight bezels could have been painted body color as a springs special option. That's pretty cool, and I am going to do that with mine. I have always preferred the '58 grille too, but lately, the '57 is really growing on me.

If you don't use the Regal Lancer trim ( I hope you do) I would love to be the new owner of it! If you were thinking of selling it of course...

hah dude its take a lot of money and time to get a complete set of regal lancer trim You couldn't imagine

I picked up the last NOS pieces off Len Dawson. I think he has one quarter panel and one fender piece left.

 

I think this is it, 60 Willow Green on White, turquise interior.

I bought a willow green desoto to check the color, looks pretty good.

I got the paint from TCP, single stage eurethane. I will see how it goes. I am really thinking willow green and black, but I already have the white put down... uhg…

Im moving the 58 Plymouth to have some room to work so i completely rewire the car with a modern harness.

Go Mike Go!

Cant wait to see your Dodge car get a color. I recon the black looks better, just seems to make the car and the green jump out!

Picked up a set of vintiques smoothie rims at summit clearance... I tried to figure out a reason not to buy them... but bolt pattern, paint perfect, offset, 6 inches wide... 100$ uhg I can use them to store the cars with later if I switch...

And picked up an alternator off a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee to experiment with. It is a 3 wire so it will work. Externally regulated, 160 amp, internal fan...

Rofl now that I have nearly all the 59 front end parts... Voila... the worlds only soon to be "57", "58" and "59" Dodge Regal Lancer...

I might as well paint the 59 parts and have them ready. I can get the 59 bumper chromed later. I already have the 57 and 58 front end ready to go.

I will need to swap over the trim though on the 59.
