Well here we are.....The Car has been at the Paint & Body for 4 weeks and 1 day now!!!.....The New Windshield is now in after the 2nd try....The 1st Attempt was a disaster.....The Installer Broke it due to being by himself with a very large piece of Glass. The Car is now a solid shade of Primer Grey from Top to Bottom....The Door Jambs are still not done...nor is the Underhood or Inside the Trunk area, But progress is being made!!!.....The holes for the Dual Spot Lights and the Rear Quarter Panel mounted Antennae are now drilled out!!!!......They seem to think the car will be finished by Monday at the latest!!!...We shall see?????.......I won't be holding my breath in light of the previous delays!!!.....What was promised to be a Two week job from start to finish is now approaching week 5......Thankfully this car is not what depend on to get around in!!!!......Allen

I knew they the car had been with them for awhile,
didn't realize that is was almost 5 weeks though.

Seems like they have really put the brakes on
the project..

When will it end? :eek:

Hey Allen, I had to go out of County for a
few days to take care of some stuff, but now
I'm back to the heat and humidity...

I did get your email, sent a reply (believe
it was to a 'xoom' email account), but it
bounced back. :eek:

Has the body shop made any progress in the
past day or so??? I think I would be banging
my head against a wall by now....
