    Dropped in unannounced on the painter on June 10th. It has been primed and blocked (looks killer). Still needs 2nd blocking. However it was covered with dust so i know its been awhile since he has touched it. But i remain optimistically hopeful.

      In the sanding stages, that dust can pile up quick. Don't judge too harshly.

      I just finished buffing out the brother-in-laws 72 Duster. That car has been the most difficult job I've done to date...

      That's a walk in the park.

      My old Belvedere was in 3 jails for over 4 years.

      Cheaped out and went MAACO on my Duster for some temporary color...2 weeks.

      If your using a body shop that does collision work. Projects are always on back burners. My work has been on a trans am for 8 months not even close to being done and it's not a show car just a driver.

      No. That is replacing complete floor pan, sandblasting under side, sound deadening inside. Repairing the usual rust spots.

      Don't ask why they didn't mask off the engine bay. They are going to remove all that undercoat overspray.

      That's basically what I charged to do all of the rust repairs, paint & body, all of the interior, all of the wiring, and all mechanical on the last '69 RR I did.
