Anger and Frustration!

After several months of delays, mostly due to bad weather, I did receive my
truck back from the restoration shop.

It went in in show ready condition. It came back as a lump!

I guess it just sat too long in a "common" area of their shop. I now have
overspray, think it must be clear coat, everywhere; especially in the
engine compartment, inner fender wells and all of the chrome.

To compound the fracture the clear coat is over a layer of dust that must
have accumulated over the months.

Any Ideas? The owner of the shop is out of town and I really wanted to
show it tomorrow.

Howard

Bummer, Bummer, Bummer!

You must be livid.

Does it rub off or is it stuck like glue?

I don't do 48-52 trucks. I have this 52 and it's got a nice tight steering
box. will it fit 53-56. Don't get me wrong. I like the older ones, but I am
limiting myself from collecting those as well. This truck only has a few
more days to live.

My steering box on my 55 is about 1/4 turn sloppy to the left. Ok to the
right. If it fits the 55 we may do some business.

Ray,

It is stuck like glue, the fine mist kind. You can hear it. I tried some
glazing compound on the running boards...no luck. The body itself is fine,
they buffed it out. The real discusting part is that the engine
compartment got it too. Now I have to be a contorsionist and reach into
places not easy to get into.

Life is a beach, too long and you will get burnt.

a restoration demands for quality.
