    Pretty soon it will be better than when it was new!

    Ok, so the story continues.. early stages of aligning the body panels and doors to the body, before sending the car off to the paint shop :) . I must admit the body shop has done a great job so far, at a fast pace without cutting corners.

    & a few pics before i sold my stick shift Camaro. It was rebuilt in 2003 (body & paint), up until 2018 it did really well, even though for about 6 years i used it all year round.

    update. From what i spoke to the bodyshop recently, getting the doors and all panels aligned is a nightmare, but they're almost done :) Hopefully by the end of next week i can send it off to paint.

    Was away for a bit @ work, testing some new models :) too bad the weather was really sh**. Still a lot of fun!

    Work was underway with the boat ;) fitted the mirrors, looking good.

    The car has finally left to the painters, to have the body stripped from the old paint, get it primed & prepped, a long process ahead.
