Default It's getting there

I went to the body shop today and he has one side in prime/sealer. It shouldn't be long before the whole car is done.

On another note my friend and I dropped off our chrome at the plating shop. We both had sticker shock!!
I had 21 pieces to do.
The good thing is that he is only 1 hour 15 mins from us so there is no shipping and we can inspect the parts before we pay for them.

Went to the body shop today and the car is ready for paint, it will be done tomorrow.
He painted the deck lid, trunk and hood. They still need to be sanded and rubbed but they look great.

That looks good. The rechrome and stainless repair/polish will definitely give you sticker shock.

Did you get the chrome back and were you happy with the quality?

Body looks great, by the way.
