That's kinda what I thought. You are quite near me and the shop I work for. Nice looking cars and a super clean shop.

Would you do the paint on my car if I did all or most of the prep? I'm not sure how you feel about that sort of thing. I can imagine you would have concerns that a poor prep job would be a major headache for you. I have experience in autobody although it's been a few years.

I'm considering starting on my car this winter so it would be at least a year off.

it would be best for you to disassemble ,possibly strip and then reassemble,for me to give you a lifetime warranty i need to know what is on the car from the metal up,,, otherwise if you do all the work i cant give the guarantee, but i would still do it for you

Thanks. I hadn't considered the idea of a warranty. I would love to discuss numbers with you to help me decide what to do. I enjoy working on my car - in fact I have two project cars at the moment and will need someone to spray both someday.

John, almost every one I know in this business in this area had worked for Gullwing Motors or Paul Russel and Company at some point. How about you?

well Dave, thirty five years in business and i can say i never worked for Paul Russel,,Im very familiar with the shop,, I sold my second body shop to Mike Noonan . Mikes autobody in Malden who was working for paul at the time,and about six years ago when Paul was looking for a manager I did go down and talk to him... but independence has always been my most valuable asset,,,This type of work has always been my passion,,Paul is a great guy and i wish i had a couple of his clients but i hope to remain independent for another tweny years or so bringing historic european cars back to life at fair prices

That's a bit too big of a project for me. Call my friend Scott McKay at Thin Air GraFX in Amesbury. Tell him I sent you. I hope to someday be able to work on larger projects myself but I still have a lot to learn.

Use the vinyl as a stencil instead; it would be better with less clear to make smooth.

So how did you get the nickname Slinky?
