    First body repair-painter, I had to take my car out of his shop. He has always done good work for me, but something happened to him. He just stopped working, wouldn't even do his Insurance work , and the Insurance co. 's stopped giving him business...Me too.
    Tough time finding someone who would finish someone else initial work . Not knowing what he used for materials and workmanship--could make the painters work fail and they might get the bad reputation.... I can understand that.
    I was well pleased with the guy that did finish and paint it. Did what he said he would do, and when . Stuck with his estimate-- a few minor flaws , but very reasonable on the cost . About 1/2 of what other painters quoted. We will put about 3-4 thousand miles on a year, so it is bound to get more flaws---- I am happy with it.......................MO

          It's nice and everyone can live with a few little flaws on a driver. You got a deal if he was 50% less than others and the big thing is you are happy.

              Just out of interest...how clean was the car when you got it back? I had my hood and fender tops painted late last week, got the car back yesterday. Took an hour to clean the dust from the interior and I'm about to finish cleaning the engine bay which looked even worse. I should have popped the hood before I left the painters to check, I assumed he would have covered the engine, maybe that's asking too much nowadays.
              Love the car BTW!

                                  Turned out very nice. I am also a big fan of the Keystones. Ran them when I was a kid and still love them.
