    Me, too! I visit the shop at least twice a week. I did witness actual welding in progress two weeks ago. What a long, strange journey it's been......

    Thatīs a good way of reminding the shop guys you expect your car is finished as soon as possible... A good question to ask them is "What are you going to do next"?

    Oh, there's never a lack of plans on his part. The problem lies in that he never does what he says he's going to do. I call shenanigans on him, but all it gets me is a litany of excuses. Majorly frustrating.

    When the car is done, you can call shenanigans on his payment. Or part of it.

    I'd always worry about what would happen if the guy's shop got shut down or he kicked the bucket...Plenty of other good paint and body shop around.

    You can try to tell him that even in Spain restoring shops are faster than him

    Anyway, patience is the main virtue required by a classic car lover

    If that's true, I'm due for canonization any day now.

    Iīm sure that if your case were broadly known you would be sanctified in life, entitled to take your cadillac to Heaven... Supposing that it was ready when this moment comes.

    I think you need to fly me and The Dullahan out to take care of this problem, a lifetime supply of beer would be ample payment.

    Oh No!!! Craig might be finished before myself and Matt. lol

    Great to see some progress on the car after so long. It looks like a nice straight car. And did you ever decide on white or blue?

    Guys, set the champagne bottle to cool!
