Thanks Dave, Yea, that is what I am talking about, at least the B/M hood and traction bars. Just a little different.

Bullitt-Great idea on the license frames, but I am already ahead of you. I figured I would never know the selling dealer, but that will change soon at least ordering dealer with those docs coming available. There was a small Chev. Dealer, here, where I live, that went out of business around 1990? I acquired both a new Trunk/tail panel emblem and a metal license frame some time ago. It was called Owen Chevrolet.

It has been a long time since I have had any progress updates to show. Since April this year my car has been in a body shop. After 7 months some progress is finally able to be shown.

Nice to see the L-78 on her way back. Bentley, will the shop break down the rust repair hours only, or all work together? I'm thinking about starting another post with this question so just wondering.

Pretty much agreed to an overall estimate when shop 1st saw what was needed and what I wanted. Intially a large payment in advance, with another installment due now and perhaps a lesser to settle up. I am trying to find out now if repair areas where as bad as thought or if it went easier. Seeing if I am ahead money wise and estimate was high initially. Probably will never really know as the price will be the same, regardless, I am sure. Car had it's issues being from the Midwest , but was not a hulk by a long stretch. Regardless, cost the same whether it is a pin hole or swiss cheese as whole panel ussually has to be replaced. I am not very experienced in estimating body work and felt somewhat at the mercy of the guy doing work.

Bentley, car is looking good, pictures look like he is doing it right. The green 69 they did turned out nice. George
