Thanks Mike & all the others for the words of encourgement ! Funny, when I was shopping around to shops in 2004 to have the structual work done almost every shop said I was wasting my time & the car was a basket case..Basket case my A** Theres two shops that I can't wait to drive this car in there & show them how wrong they were..I'm the type of guy that when someone tells me I can't repair some thing I just have to prove them wrong !! & belive me after 20 plus years in the A/B business I've proven many a person wrong !Cool

Nice Grandé..Mike ,I had one of those too ! I will have to dig out my pics..No neither shop is local, one was in manchester the other was in N.milford but it's not N.milford A/B. Carland is still around & I knew the owner Art, I havn't seen him in years. The last time I was in there had to be around 2000 when I spent a year doing some apprisal work after I sold my shop..I still keep my apprisal license current. I did work at Andys auto coach works from 88 to 90 By the way my last shop I sold is still in business just the way I left it. Heres the shop I sold
