I know shells that have gone to the shop for body and paint that have taken a year or more to hear about any progress. My Santa Ana guys are true bosses when it comes to getting stuff done. Two months after I dropped it off, I got pictures of the body before it goes to paint in a few days. The rear panel was pretty wonky when I got it, the bulges beneath the rear plate were hammered (or attempted) flat, but left just lumpy. I just told them to blend them in as best as they could, because race car.
