March 2013 Update
The body shop has made great progress on the car. If you go back to my update here I dropped it off for the next phase of the project which was getting the doors blasted, refinished and primed in October. In November the doors were removed for blasting and Sherman was brought back to my house for safekeeping. In January all fours doors had been blasted, refinished and primed, and in February Sherman went back for the doors to be fitted and the rocker panels refinished. In March I returned and was surprised at such great progress that all that was complete and the passenger rear fender was refinished and in primer. The car is currently at the shop getting the trunk lid refinished.
Here are chronologic pictures of the journey culminating at where the body shop is at now.
