I initially posted pictures of the restoration of my '71 Plymouth Satellite in my Welcome Wagon thread (Hello from France !), but they should be more accurately posted here, and the posts cannot be moved.
So here I go again !

As a reminder, I initially crashed the car in the front end 2 and a half years ago, and decided to go for a total body restoration in addition to the repairs so that it does not look like the old rear melted with a new front.
And you will see there was a little bit of work to be done to fix all the mess discovered ...

I must admit I've been a bit down during the last year because the work is still in progress and it seems like a neverending story ...
The coachbuilder does a very good work but it's not a prority for the garage so it's very slow ... way too much ...
I also know that he's been at one point quite discouraged as he kept finding things to fix every time he made progresses ...
That being said, it's now fortunately much closer to the end

Keep at it. I can see why it's taking extra time. You were sold a rust bucket turd with poor previous work done.
