    Hmmmm....Googled "Metal Art Customs" in Ohio and nothing comes up. Do you have an address or phone number? Was that Piqua Ohio?

    A couple of updates from Darrell's place
    First placed the bumper on her to make sure all body lines in rear were square

    Then drilled holes in the Qtr to install and rear spoiler.

    Just curious how you found Metal Art Customs from all the way down in Texas and why you chose them? I haven't heard of him locally, but that's not too surprising. Looks like pretty decent work. Went to the Facebook page and the address their points to a residence. I'm looking for a body shop to do my car and everybody local who's cars I like the guy that did the work either retired, moved or died.

    I also have a 1964 Chevy truck. When I started building the truck, which was 3 years ago, he was very helpful on another facebook page dedicated to those trucks. As time went by, and I followed his builds, we developed a friendship and a professional trust. Darrell does incredible work and at a great price. He does not have a huge shop and prefers to do the work himself instead of hiring a bunch of people and cranking it out faster. Darrell is a strong Christian man and I trust him. I could have found someone here to finish it but chose to send it up there where I know it will be right. He has already found things I didn't know about that would have been a disaster if not repaired. Give him a call, you won't regret it.
    I will be up there in November to look at paint panel samples. If you would like to meet, that would be wonderful.
