All the gaps in alignment are perfect, considering a new quarter panel was put in. When I grow up, I think I'll be a "body guy".

New Project: 1966 Chevelle SS. A true 138 car, very solid.
Customer managed to find new set of back seat springs, out west from a 66 Cutlass. Great thing about 60's GM cars, many parts are interchangeable.

Total restoration summer of 2013. Repair November 2017 by Barry Miller. Great customer decided to convert to 4 speed DIY. Great job. ran into a body alignment issue along the way; disturbing the forward body mount and front left fender adjustment. Opened driver door to make maiden test drive and peeled off 1" of paint down the entire front fender. Our repair included straightening door and front fender and repaint. Great repair Barry Miller, looks like it never happened.
