Re: 65 Chevelle Drag Car Build
Your painter is about 500 times faster than most. A buddy at work just got his car back from paint after 18 months. Soooooooo many stories of body shop jail.
That's impressively quick. Quickest paint I think I've ever seen.
Yes, I've had my run in with body shop prison. Really more of body shop nightmare, the guy did more damage than anything else, that's how I ended up using this guy. But really he had it WAY longer than he did my mustang.
It's funny.. when I dropped it off, I asked him what his timeline was, and made the cardinal sin of saying "I'm not in a rush" for it. At the time, I was just going to have the sheet metal hung, and that's it. I was going to let it sit until I was ready to have the new cage burned in, and then worry about paint.. He said no worries, I'm ready to go.. I'll have it knocked out in 2 weeks! lol And the first two pics are ones he sent me within 2 days of dropping it off.. then it just stopped.... and it sat. That when I was ok.. I'll just put it together with the stuff I have and play while I put money together to put a real chassis in it.. that when putting it back together came into focus.
But all in all, I'm glad it's getting done, he does killer work!
