Well, this is Round II. After disappointment from the first body guy, (see 1st post and, also the date of that post) and a period of desperation, I have finally found a person to work on my car. He is local and as of last night, the car is sitting in his shop. Hopefully, this thing can get back on track. I think 4 years of body shop hold up and robbery is enough. I was very close to giving up on the car and parting it out, seriously! But now, I am finding that small flame of enthusiasm for this car is starting to grow again and interest hopefully will come back in time. Look for some real progress pics in the near future.
I must also thank the many, here, that have been supportive, encouraging, understanding through their PMs.
