I also drug out the front & rear bumper reinforcements to see how I could reduce their mass and weight by a cutting away some of the metal.

Good point Max... THANKS

Johnny, I'm really close, but now I need to find a new shop to handle the body and paint. The shop I was gonna use is closing it's doors the end of September. My target it to have it in the body shop before the holidays... if I can find a shop I feel can do the work to my standards. I'm kind anal! LOL

John,

He still wants to do it but I'm concerned about the quality until I see how his home shop is set up. Come too far to let it get screwed up now!!! Cry

true!the guy with the knowledge makes a big difference the shop, well i can tell you i've done some damn nice paint jobs in a dirt floor garage Shocked not that i'd recommend doing that lol, and i've done some in a shop that was like an electronics "clean room" and every piece of dust and lint from 2 counties found it's way into the clear!Confused....
