Well, I haven't check in in a while. It seems things are going great. About the hood, I've done it twice, I must be honest. Every time something like that happens to me, the first words the shop utters, is "It came in that way!". I have 20 cars and know ever dent and scratch on everyone of them. The killer was my father-in-law knocked over the surveyer's stick, the thing with the numbers on it that they read from a far. It hit the rear end of my 1962, 65k original miles, with still the original softop, Corvette. I like to cried and sucked it up and said "No problem". It took a quater sized divit a quarter inch deep out of the rear deck. It still there and it has been 20+ years. The good news I got it started last fall after a 25 year hibernation. I plan to drive it this year.

If it were mine, I'd like to see the dash completely disassembled, then painted, not just masked off. It's almost impossible to get a clean edge around all the gauges and indicator lamps by masking them, especially when the final color is so drastically different than the original.

Can't wait to see some YELLOW!!
