Original quote was $3,500 when we were doing floors and trunk. My guess is now we are in the $5,000 range. The nice thing is he lets me come in and do any prep work that might be needed.

Here's some shot of of us getting the window channel pulled out and the new piece clamped in.





I'm headed in on Friday to do more prep work before the car gets shot in DP90.

Stopped into the shop Thursday to do some more prep work before the car gets seam sealed and shot with epoxy. Body guy had the dash all finished up.

Friday he was doing seam sealer and Saturday shooting the underside and firewall with epoxy. Everything goes right the body will be back on the frame and in our shop by Christmas.

Re: 65 300 Deluxe Build

Been awhile since I updated the thread. I got my car back before Christmas and have started to strip the it before any additional body work. I found that my driver's door wasn't in as good as shape as I had hoped and was rusted through and separating. Luckily I found one at French Lake and brought that home. I still need to find at least the passenger side fender, thinking both though. You can see from the pictures that it was filled with a lot of bondo.
