Also Note all the different primers on the car, any shop that put out nice work, show or not is going to sand all that primer off and note the front of hood area by lights, a full size Cadillac would be faster.
Are they readjusting gaps??
The bonnet has to come off to do underneath right, doors off? deck lid off?
There is a whole lot of work to do here, besides just scuff and paint.
I can see where they are looking pretty fair in hour guess at this point.
if I read his post correctly, they already primed it, and it is ready for blocking and paint. sorry, that would mean the jams and underhood are already in primer from the shop as he brought them a media blasted car.
240+ hours is way way to much. to block out primer and spray a single stage paint, and wet sand that.
It better be a national show winner for what he has in it. 27-34k in body shop rust/rot free car that small. single stage paint, not fancy peril or candy not even b/c c/c
