I went out to the body guys house today and put a temporary rear end and front end in the car just to get it home. I felt bad putting nasty used suspension on the car even though it is only to transport it home. I will not bring the shell home till later this week or Saturday. I have to figure out where to put the hood and fenders because I will not be installing them any time soon. I am so far behind on this car that it may not even make it to the MCACN show. I will not get in a hurry so if I make it or not don’t really matter. If I don’t make it to MCACN then the 2021 Nationals will be its first big show. The paint job is far better quality than original but I also did not have him go to the extreme. I also have to paint the black under the fender wells and back wheel wells. I had planned to do that myself. I wanted the over spray like the factory did and then paint the black over it like original. I did not want to pay him to try to duplicate it like my wife’s original paint car so I figure I can do that with the two cars side by side.
