Stopped in with the body guy. He has most of it all done. Still has to paint the wheels and some small interior parts. He was buffing the hood when I got there. He starts installing pools really soon and don’t need the space so I am leaving the body there till sometime in May. I have to gut my garage and get it cleaned up before I bring it home. I had that garage spotless when I built the W-30 but not sure I will have it as nice this time. I still have lots of stuff to restore and likely will still be doing that with the car in there. I will just have to get a good cover for it while I am building other stuff.
I knew it was not realistic to get this all done for $10K and suspected it would be closer to $13K and maybe a little more. Turns out that it is just shy of $15K for body, paint and supplies. The over budget here has already been saved in other things that were under budget. As long as the engine don’t go over I will be good for the overall budget.
