    It's not work at this point, it's fun I think. That bodywork is the killer to me. (and I suck at it)

    As long as the body panel alignment is good... This is the fun part!

    No chips or scratches during reassembly of the bumpers, trim etc. <fingers crossed>

    If you are worried about scratches, especially when aligning fenders and heavy parts, I use masking tape on the paint then put duct tape over that. Sometimes 2 layers. That way, the tape comes off without leaving sticky residue but you get some serious protection.
    I had to nick the fender while aligning it with the door before I figured this out.:mad:

    Congratulations on getting your car back! Now I know what my car would have looked like with stripes. It would have looked great!

    Your car looks great without them. :)
    Besides, it's nice to see some early 2nd gens without stripes. There's more cars now with stripes than GM ever made, lol.
