Yes, they are doing what is necessary.

I hope they finish it soon as my 1996 SS getting a little long in the tooth for daily driving duty. It had a blinking "Service Engine Soon" light (DTC code P0300 - Random cylinder misfire condition) episode this morning and it is now at a Chevy dealer awaiting diagnosis.
My rental car is a red 2013 Camaro 1LT convertible....

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.

Thanks Mike!

It should be one of the nicest paint jobs at Camaro5 Fest V, provided I don't run into tar and gravel again....

Assembled and installed the mirrors.
Assembled the front and rear bumpers.
Installed the roof molding, fuel door assembly and sun roof.
All that's left is to install are the front, quarter and rear glass, drip moldings, door handles, bumpers, fender wells, rockers and emblems.
(still waiting on the emblems, fender wells and assorted hardware pieces to arrive)
