I decided to fix some body issues that have been bothering me. Some of these things have been an issue with me since it was painted in 1983. You know how this goes, I was putting in a body shop for this. Well as long as it’s there I might as well do….

My list wasn’t that long or so I thought. I have known Dave at the shop I picked for many years. I had the misfortune of having mice nest in the back over a winter some years back. That is when I met Dave. We figured out how to get the urine smell out of my car. I also found the hole in my garage where the mice got in and plugged that.

Mostly I am just going to share some pictures I took of the process. Some of them are kind of cool and interesting.

One of the things that I had Dave fix is some damage I had on the back, right end. Dave convinced me to have him, since he was working on that end anyway, fix the leaded seams on the fastback side panels. Both those seams were bubbling up. I stopped by to check on my car one day and Dave had pretty much prepped the entire rear end of the car including the top for paint. He said he was working on much of the rear end any way. In fact he painted 2/3 of the car. When I picked it up and realized that, I did ask why didn’t you go ahead and do the other 1/3?
