My girlfriends dad has a 79 Lincoln that he wants to have restored for Christmas. Just looking for a reputable place that does a nice job! Cool

I'll be watching this thread...I need a few things done to my car and I don't want it hacked up.

When I got my truck fixed by a friend, he did do a good job, but there were a few things that made me scratch my head like sanding scratch marks from under the paint showing through it, dust all over the interior, dangling footwell lights, and silver paint all over the chassis of my truck. Would it have killed them to give me my truck back after shooting 50 cents worth of black rustoleum along the frame? Laughing I guess I was surprised because the guy does restorations and I have seen work he's done that's very good. I think his helper, who was a douche and doesn't work there anymore, did the crap to my truck I didn't like.

I know a very good one quite local to me. It is called Greenwood Unlimited and I have a friend who's truck comes out of the Greenwood shop this week...it is looking sweet.

I would be happy to "investigate" further and drool over some of his work if your GFs father is interested...

I'll get over and check out the final product of my buddies truck and let you know this weekend hopefully. How much resto are we talking here?

Paint needs to be completely stripped and painted again, and the entire interior needs to be upholstered.
