    should have mentioned, this pos turd aint mine, thank gawd:eek1:


    hours, upon hours, have been spent making this thing nice, the whole front, subframe and rear quarters are swapped, the previous body guy had do the rear quarters sucked, nothing wanted to line up, on these you have to have the rear quarter correct and then continue forward, well the doors were not alined before the base was shot, then when the front was installed everything was wrong:mad: not to mention had to reshoot the base and clear after some people who first wetsanded it went throught the clear on every single edge:mad: so.... hours and hours and a game plan its getting close and when dave gets in town he will be very happy to see the progress:wink1:

    long story short, a good friend and wheeling buddy own the shop, he fired his painter, and the office guy and two others and literally called me in tears from agrivation, so now I am trying to do this in afternoons, nights and weekends while still running my business full time and trying to keep my customers all happy,

    If this nightmare comes to an end soon ill be doing a driver quality job for some poor sob who had his beer glasses on for a firebird convert he bought at barret jackson this year, ill post pics and just kep em on this thread. the firebird will be my fist black paintjob....
