So I am guessing that is the small tab for the rear bumper pad....maybe? Very cool that we are finally down to the minutia. I will be going down to L.A. on Saturday the 14th to see the car- can't wait to see it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Just looking at that thing hurts. I tore three pairs of pants on mine and cut my thigh open each time before I finally wrapped it in enough tape to make it safe to walk around.

So Kent wanted to change the way the oil cooler and the shroud attaches. He welded up these holes and will work some cool magic.

We are getting closer to color.....

So the seam of the the top of the roll bar and the sail panel looked bad before. That was not Scott's work- that was how the car was when I got it. Covered by the chrome trim, but it needed to be corrected. Kent took care of it.

As you can see it now looks perfect.

So then Kent moved on to the cowl that had some waves and it is now perfect

Then came the windshield surround, A-pillars- one of the few areas of the car that really did not need any metal work.

Here is the deck lid straight and flat and ready for the next step.

The body has been primed and blocked twice now and is looking great.

I can't figure out how he keeps the shop so clean. Multiple coats and sandings. Full time job with the shopvac.

Yeah, I know. Kent's shop is exactly what you would expect based upon the work you see. That's the way it should be. The first time I walked into his shop I relaxed and knew I was in the right place.

Rare to find someone like Kent, over here all the body and paint guys seem to be bat s*it crazy (IMG:style_emoticons/default/w00t2.gif) too many chems over too many years I guess

Car is looking great and testimony to persistence and commitment from both of you

Looking forward to the colour reveal (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drooley.gif)

So I was down to Kent's shop, Auto Art Customs, to see my car and catch up on the progress. Kent has been busy nailing down all of the little issues that may often be overlooked when a car is completely redone. I am just amazed at the level of craftsmanship he brings to the table. Here are some pictures, but it is difficult to really see the detail in photos:

People will be reading and studying this and other restoration threads of Kent's for years.

That is my hope. When you look up "Craftsmanship" in the dictionary (or Google it for the younger crowd) you should see Kent's face.

Sounds like he's the "gold standard" then... or paint code 88 standard. L97G for the 4 crowd.

It does look incredible. Top notch work.

I would have really liked to have left it all in metal finish and just cleared it. It looked so cool like that.
