    How do you keep all of that bare steel in the shop from rusting? Is the humidity that low at your elevation? Let me throw my admiration to your work on the heap of praise also.

    • Right hand door metal finishing. Added to the ingredients of making in a little more difficult is the original sound deadening material sprayed inside.

    Just curious what a truly magnificent chop top cost at your shop with a body that was good to start with? I know what they charge in our area for that kind of work and I am sure your rates are comparable.
     
  24. Long after the cost of the work is forgotten, the quality of the work will still remain.
