Front Bumper Alignment and Bodywork | UPDATE 6/13/2016

The guys at the auto body shop painted the nose and bumper cover over the weekend, and everything's looking great. But now the hood looks like it could use a fresh coat of paint, so I asked him to take care of it since the car is at the shop anyway.

I know that I added a few extra days to this project, as well as more money, but sometimes you just have to go for it and have things done right.

By the way, they were in the process of fitting the bumper when I took these photos, hence the big gaps. Plus they also have to repaint the bumperettes semi-gloss black.

Here are more photos.

The paint has yet to be buffed, but that's the last thing they'll do when they are done with it.

The car's looking fantastic, so a few more days will be totally worth the wait.

Oh, and I also asked them to leave the L-48 emblems off. Once I get the engine rebuilt and upgraded those badges will be totally irrelevant.

Thanks for following my '76 Vette Blog!
