    Thank you so much! I think that we should see the chassis back very soon. I was told this week but I'm trying to be cool and not rush the body shop.

    Someday my car will be back. Maybe before the snow comes? :)

    Nice primer coat after going to the metal. He's block sanding it today and maybe just maybe it will get re masked (so there's no dust in the masking) and put back into the paint booth. I talked to the painter for a while this morning. He's really excited about the car which makes me happy. He's taking his time and I'm trying not to bother him about it. He said that in areas where the paint was most dry and cracked there was some surface rust under the paint as it wasn't sealed anymore. This is why he took it down so far before priming.
