    Sorry to hear about the treatment of your car with all of her bare parts
    exposed in the weather. I doubt it will make you feel any better, but the
    same thing happen to me. Two year ago I had my car bead blasted at a top
    quality shop. I paid top dollar too. Next, I carried the car to a custoum
    body shop that had been highly recommended, and whose work had won Best of
    Show in several local car shows. He had a big shop with about 20 cars in
    there so when he said he was backed-up and that it would take 4 months, I
    didn't worry since I assumed my naked Amphi would be stored inside with all
    the others. Even after a few months, when the work hadn't begun, I didn't
    mind too much since I had gone on to other projects. Only after 6 months
    did I discover that my car had been stored outside under an old canvas tarp.
    What had been shiny smooth metal, had turned a nice sheen of dark coarse
    rust.
    I ended up taking the car to a nice guy, who did average work, but who
    was willing to start right away.
