Visited the car today and it is looking really good, they are using a bit more bondo than I thought they would but certainly an acceptable amount by today's standards.

One of the big worries was the finned tail panels not fitting, turns out the quarter panel extensions were bent and a pair off of ebay fixed that, everything fits perfect.

Overall I think the painter is doing a great job and things are moving quickly.

Yep, sure looks like he's movin' along nicely. If he stays on this pace, you'll have your car back in no time.

Boy, I sure am going to miss the green-orange paint job... NOT!


Looks great, keep the fingers crossed the painter keeps moving along.

GT_SCODE is financing the painter's family xmas spending, so the painter has no choice but to be done by end of this month+/-.

I saw the car yesterday as well since I was in the neighborhood looking at another Mustang for someone who was interested in buying one. The painter did wonders on GT_SCODE's deck lid. :thumbup:

Great progress!! On the pic of the door on the panel stand, it appears to still have the rubber window seal and the door latch mechanism attached. I suggest you get those off before paint and clean up and lube the latch as the media from blasting is probably inside it.

Are we still racing? LOL Chuck came over yesterday and we completed the list of stuff for me to order. I'll be going by the body shop this week.
Great pics too!
