I haven't been able to get to the shop this week.

I hope to check on the progress tomorrow.

As of today, the front, rear and quarter panel glass is out!
Body prep should start real soon.

By the way, the little black specks that are visible in the passenger side tail light pocket are bits of tar and gravel that I encountered in Oklahoma..

They finally moved the car to the inside of the shop.

Before they start sanding the body, I have requested that color sample test panels be created so I can match them to the original paint.

Well, no new progress to report as of today.

Because the shop is really busy, the possibility exists that my car may not be completed in time for Camaro5 Fest V.

I will speak to the owner tomorrow to see if this is the case.

The car is finally being prepped for paint, although they still have to remove the roof antenna.
(the rear bumper cap will be removed after sanding)

After 3 days of trying, I think we finally got a good color match. It will look deeper with more clear coat.
