At the paint shop...

I installed the new doors, took off the chrome, plastic, door handles, mirrors, antenna, grille, and bumpers and marked about 100 chips, dents, etc.

The shop has started paint preparations and so far I am happy with the work.

I wish I had the time to do this part myself, also. But I know it would be a month of weekends before I got this far along.
