    73Resto: Final touches

    Those Dunkel pictures are awesome. I had to settle for visiting my car in the shop. Here's some shots from yesterday. I'd asked them to fix a list of things (small stuff), and now its down to final details and then a good cleaning/detailing (ignore the dust on the interior, it'll come off).

    Jared - does the trunk area look better now? How's the blue dot look with the silver Momo? I kinda like it

    Question for the professionals out there (Rick, others?): I want the car to pass a Pre-purchase inspection before I make the final payment on the car (local to the resto shop). Seems like a reasonable request to me, but it wasn't part of the initial contract (neither was it taking 12 months but I should have known on that one). Is that pretty standard?

    Legally, you can't require that PPI now and he can sue you if you back out. Also, you are sort of jacking him around by requiring it and forcing him to sue.

    But you could say, that since it took 12 months and you hadn't figured on that, will he let you do a PPI.

    Chris,

    That was fast! Doesn't look like they properly replicated the sloppy overspray and thin paint coverage in the trunk - as the factory did it in '73. (Cost cutting, NOT weight saving).

    Silver proto looks great - I'm tempted to swap out my black one. Bluedot Blau is a POS - you haven't yanked it out yet???

    In regards to a PPI, he who holds the cash calls the shots. Sounds reasonable to me before making final payment (would have been better to clarify up front). Just don't get too picky - i.e. it's not a concours job. Maybe you could have a knowledgeable local S registry pal come by and do an "informal"inspection (including a compression check). This may be more acceptable to the shop owner.

    GET THAT TUB ON THE ROAD ALREADY!

    BTW - any progress on the hood badges???
    Jared
