250C in for body work and paint

Here is the latest on my car. Will replace both left and right floor pans (rust) and both front fenders (long ago accident damage) from my friend Don and our shared parts car.. Will be bead blasted with Walnut Shells Monday to remove the rest of the paint and old body filler. Then on to Body prep and primer, then frame straightening ( same long ago accident damage) and then paint. Should have it back first week of January.....maybe! I then get to take it home and reassemble all of the bits and pieces that I removed in late October.

I thought my job was big
I bet it would look fantastic

Do you plan do to the same color? Metallic or not?
Have you considered dual color?

Great job
