From the old forum...here are the measurements for the Sportone trim holes on a 2dr hd top model..The 4dr will be slightly different.



The rear-most upper trim hole
This is the hole that the little 45 degree elbow piece is fastened to.Below shows the horizontal measurement from the edge of the fin to the center of the hole. 13 5/8" The second picture is just a close up of the reference point I used to obtain the measurement. Note that the tape measure is not wrapped around the curve of the fin.





Vertically from the top of the fin to the same hole is 12 1/8". I measured from the top of the fin, not at the seam as shown in the second photo. If you want to measure from the seam it's 12 9/16", but might not be the same on all Plymouths







Just to assure accuracy, the distance from the hole down to the crease in the quarter panel is 7 3/8"
The rear-most lower trim hole

Using the crease in the rear quarter as a reference point, the distance up to the center of the hole is
1 3/4". For accuracy reasons, note that the tape measure is pressed flat against the panel and follows every curve in the sheetmetal.
The horizontal distance from the edge of the fin was a bit tricky to measure and came to 3 1/8"

Thanks for posting this Wayne. I'm still contemplating converting my 57 so this will be most helpful if I decide to do it.

I saw a '57 with Sportone insert along the '57 trim pattern (without the hockey stick portion on the quarters) it looked great. So picture on yours instead of the dark red stripe, there would be anodized aluminum. Would be a neat project.

It was a red on red modified Belvedere with. a 440 on ebay. It's no longer there but I found the car.

http://car-from-uk.com/sale.php?id=38097&country=us

On closer inspection, it may just be silver paint but you can get the idea. It looked like alum inserts to me until I blew up the image before posting the URL here.. What do you think? You'd be unique '57 with Sportone option..... Just sayin'

Glad to help guys. There's a lot more info and I'll be moving it over slowly and adding to it over time.

Now that you mention it Joe, I have seen that car before. I'm still just toying with making any modifications at this time cause I'm torn between wanting my car to look like a 58 and my reservations toward making alterations from stock, not to mention the cost of parts but I am partial to the "hockey stick" upsweep trim. It really compliments the shape of the fins in my opinion.

Sweeps are cool! Big 'M' makes the elbows and I think the sweeps now from the piece of the upper wide sport tone trim you cut off of the '57. The lower sport tone will have to be grafted to a straight piece. Marc.
