The following is a brief summary of what looked to be a complete replacement shell with touchup black paint and bed liner. I instructed no touchup and wasnít expecting anything beyond epoxy primer, but I get it was made to look similar. Iíll have to re-drill for: windshield molding, trim, doorsills, hydraulic clutch, oil bulkhead fittings, power top, quarter panels, AC mounting, AC lines, body tack strip, and a few other things, but I will just have to do it better round two. I used a tape measure and laser on a few positions. The substructure looked to be now symmetrical. Good gap between cowl and doors. The replacement structure has a 66/GT style dash per my request. Super positive and happy about all this.
I brought a few major and minor items to their attention. The following is only a summary. Originally, I had single piece aprons, which looked to be replaced with two-piece aprons with drilled out towers. The LH upper control arm was rubbing along the apron.
It looks like my second pair of fenders was modified like the first set that I provided.
The vehicle was on a four-point lift, so I wasnít able to pull the rims and fully inspect. I brought to their attention that the majority of the suspension hardware, powder coat, and a caliper were damaged. I was instructed that everything passed QC.
My anodized Ring Brother trunk hinges probably need to be replacement as well. There are other things, but overall positive about the replacement. However, not yet ready for the journey home.
