    Nice looking shop. Looks like they have a wide range of vehicle types that they work on.

      Most of the major repairs on the body are completed and a base coat of primer and now the simmering period for the body to equalize and experience different conditions which will allow it to change and move as it expands and contracts.

              Thanks for the encouraging words. However to be fair I'm not doing the work but would agree the shop is doing a great job so far.

              Not a lot of progress this month as the car is still in the adjustment/equalizing stage and they are moving to a larger facility in December.

              I had them save most of the bits and pieces as I thought they might be used for patterns, patch panels or someone might need or want the spare parts. Also thanks to Jerry Forester for re-chroming the Dagmars/Bullets.

                Well Christmas came early! I sent the dash out to Just Dashes in California and it was delivered today! Looks great especially given what I sent them was little more then the vinyl covering as all the foam had long since disintegrated.

                  Working on the doors. These are the original doors and surprisingly not rusted out along the bottom. ​​​​​​​
