I can't believe a very good detailer like you would let the paint go for so long. O0 Get her done fast I've always liked your car. :)

the paint had issues either way... vinyl messed it up pretty good, the paint itself is one of the ones that just starts coming off. all in all, i think i kept it as nice or nicer than anyone else's for as long as possible... its just beyond fixable in a few areas. the car has 170K+ on it :dunno:

Thanks Jeff!! im prepared to wait... seems any performance work takes 2-3 times as long as they tell you it will. im not worried though, i know Jim does exceptional work and if he's taking extra time its only so its done right.

as far as my paint... its hard to screw up perfection so its definitely going to be the same color. ive got some ideas in my head but i dont know if there's anything i wont get tired of :dunno:

I've got them in my hand now. Just got back from the shop.
Paid off the labor for all the body work - OUCH-

They were some concepts, I like things here and there.
He's doing a few more that we narrowed out on what I liked.
I'll post them up later tonight.

So how many months did the shop "say" it would take to finish your ride?

i didnt get a set time that it would be done... is that bad? LMAO!!!

he said he'd call me at the end of this weeks to let me know where we are. he's going to be working on my mystery electrical issue before he does the motor swap.

oh here's an update... i thought they were VT cams, turns out theyre Comps :dunno:
