This week all of the collision body damage was repaired/replaced/completed and the final primer coat was wet sanded. The prepared body is scheduled for the paint booth next Monday. Will send photos after final paint.

Of course, it is costing about half as much more than I thought it would and is taking about three times longer than I had hoped.

All the work is being done by British car enthusiasts Bob and Eric Barth, owners of Automotive Unlimited in Warsaw, IN. <www.aubodyshop.com>

FINISHED Yesterday, I picked up my MGC GT after nearly two years of body restoration. I am very happy with the finished results.

The collision and body work was done by Automotive Unlimited of Warsaw, Indiana. Owned by father and son Bob and Eric Barth. I highly recommend them.
