I just got my insurance check for the egg job on my stang. I received a couple hundred more than I paid MACCO to do the whole job.

I figure I can use the couple hundred to buff and fix the worst of the areas and the rest to get my engine rebuilt. This is my driver and I do not care that the paint is less than perfect, otherwise I would of not gone to MACCO in the first place. I know this will void any warranty but with this check, I am out nothing for the paint job.

Since the rust was taken care, I do not need (key point) new paint, I NEED a new engine.

I think I need to polish the areas that were egged to determine how deep the damage was done.

What do ya’ll think?

I agree with your thinking. Do what you can to clean up the paint, and repair it yourself where you can / want. Use the insurance money to fund what you really NEED. Dickson

I'd be a checking about the rust repair. I had a '68 Custom 500 cop car & the rust repair was a few strips of aluminum tape & bondo. Lasted a year. Glad I didn't pay for it!
