I heard from a buddy that he heard my car was being blasted the past couple days and was to be EP'd (epoxy primed) today.
Last I saw it looked like this.
I figured I had better see this for myself, primarily because I was considering going elsewhere since there had been no progress in about a month.
So I shot a couple pics.
JULY 10thth, 2013
So I visited the body shop today, July 10, 2013 and I felt like a Loomis or Brinks truck doing weekly drop offs of cash. Anyway, the dings and dents of 39 years have been banged out, and new life is breathed into the old girl.
First coat of prime is on and needs to be blocked and some pits need to be tidied up. I see some #022 paint in the future, it'll be like a sunrise of sorts.
Anyway some shots from today's visit.
UPDATE July 24th 2013
So July 24th I head over to the shop and see this out back by the hedge, with no one in sight resembling a worker........ but I did seize the chance to snap a couple pictures of it since it was nice and sunny, so no flash etc....
I was a little disappointed with the standby that my car had been put on, but what can I do right?
UPDATE August 1st, 2013
Today, I was scheduled to drop off some cash to get current with the progress. I stopped in around 10 this morning to not see my car anywhere inside, and thankfully not in the rain. I bumped into the paint guy and he said I got there in the nick of time as they were about to re prime it and he wanted to show the seam sealing and so on.
I peaked into the booth and this is what I got to see and snap a couple pics of.
Then the painters headed in to start priming. The window was pretty grimey .... so this is the best I could do capturing the action.
When the first guy came out, I asked if they would get to some orange today.
Well he said go grab a coffee and we'll be done orange and clear by lunch.
I came back at 12:30 and they were cleaning their guns.
