I thought about a detailer but I am afraid that there is still more work to be done. There are several places that he was working on that have been sanded to the primer level
Okay, I wasn't aware it has been sanded down to primer in spots. Yes, then it sounds like paint work is needed. I think your best course of action is to keep searching for a body man (it can be a tough one), who hopefully take a look at it in person, and discuss what will be required to finish is up, hopefully even be willing to take on and finish the job. No easy task, most collision oriented places will likely walk away, and anyone who does decent work at a decent price likely has a bit of work already.

Take a look at this thread about a search for a body man. Please excuse my post, as I stubbled onto the thread after I had recently finished working on a mustang that I made squat on, as well hearing from a lot of people thinking they could get something like an old minivan painted for a few hundred bucks.

Is there any car shows, cruise ins, ect in the area you could attend. Maybe if you get out and start talking to some car buffs in your area, they may have some recommendations on who to call. If they are someone who has had enough work done, they may know who is good in the area and might be willing to take on the job. Maybe you will luck out and they might even know someone who does it on the side reasonably, is into old cars, and does decent work.
