Charles - The clear-coat was peeling on my wife's wagon. I had him redo just the hood and roof. He did a great job for me too...I was very pleased.

Charles,
How much time did he take to fix it, and how did he do it? Is it as an old TV commercial once said "Ancient Chinese secret"!

It looks GREAT!!

The restoration of your manta is awesome, I thought mine was bad when I had to cut both front chassis legs from the car to repair them on the garage bench -one at a time-. You didn't have much of floor left when you finished cutting, did you make the repair panels yourself or were they pre-fabricated? Hey! like the color Monza blue are you going to keep it the same?

The repair panels I bought.. they are oversized pieces out of Germany.

It only took Kenny about a day and a half to do the whole body.. As good as his work was, I wish he had spent a little more time on the hood. Although I know its not a easy panel to get straight.

His work was good enough though that after all that work on that beat body, I painted the car A Dark Graphite color.. yes it shows every flaw, but surprizingly there are very few of them and the ones that are there aren't terrible.
