Because of this background info I am around $2000 over budget and behind schedule. The owner of the shop I was having my car painted at (great guy all around) was very displeased with the quality of his workers work (I'm their first restoration). Because of that, yesterday morning he sent my car to arguably the best custom and restoration shop in town to have bodywork and paint done. The guy who owns the shop my car was sent to has been working exclusively on my car the past two days. The owner of the original shop is going to eat all the cost of sending my car to the fancy shop and all of the cost to me that was over his original estimate. My final cost is going to be around $3500. Theoretically I get the car back tomorrow afternoon which gives me three days to get my car reassembled for my car show Saturday morning (which you guys should attend). Things are turning out for the better.
