I have a friend with the same exact car (but in silver) and she's looking for someone local to do pretty much the same thing you guys did here.... Her car is probably a bit more rough than that one was (especially under the hood), but being silver it doesn't show nearly as many swirls. How much would the same service cost her? I'll pass on your information to her.

Awesome work as usual, really enjoy these posts showing the different vehicles you end up 'restoring'. Too bad you aren't located around the Maryland area, know anyone with a similar business down here?
