Don't know how I missed this Dave. Looks really nice.:cool: Like that color. What did yo have to do on it that comprised the 265 hours? I'm assuming this is thorough repaint not a total resto?

Chris -stripped to metal- rear taillight panel came off and passenger side quarter panel was broke loose and everything re- welded - something was off by about 1/4 of an inch . Refabbed the bumper brackets for better fitment - rear valance was actually welded to the quarters and I had to put that back to factory where it’s bolted in just in case he backs into something- easier repair. All gaps redone- welding metal to edges to close them up . Don’t really know where the hours went but the hours are legitimate . A lot of details (sanding with a flashlight )- he made a comment that “ better be like glass “ for 15 grand ! Unrealistic expectations but I tried for perfection - the color is from the Dave Kindig collection- “ Redical”

Wow!!! You work quick Dave. 265 is pretty fast for that amount of work and the end result. Lot faster than I could have done it. Great job!:)

Looks real nice, great color! Your price was very fair & reasonable. I think 265 hours is worth more, but you did good for side work.
