Stopped at the paint shop this week

I had narrowed my choices down to two body shops. I needed to kick myself in the butt, so I stopped by the 1st choice I had in body shops, with the passenger door 90% blocked, last week, to see what he thought.

Things looked good, so I finished that door off tonight, and am going to begin prepping the removable pieces to bring in for him to seal, prime and high build.

I just have to make up some good storage racks for the body parts that are removed to keep them from being damaged. (any suggestions? my thought is plywood rack and strips of carpet)

The initial plan is to do the pieces while I finish off prepping the rest of the body. Once the pieces are done, I am going to bring in the body for the same seal prime and high build. The engine compartment will also get done. There is a 90% chance we'll paint the jambs and other areas body colour at that time too.

Once this is done, I am going to get really excited about assembling the car.

I just hope that in doing my final prep work, there are no major flaws I have to redo before going to the body shop
