If you don't mind (according to mapquest) an hour and 16 minute drive, I know a great shop you can take your car to. I work at a repair/high performance/custom/body shop that does excellent work. If you are interested PM me, and remember that if you are looking at a fiberglass kit understand that it is going to be much more expensive due to the HOURS of prep/fitment time that are involved. I would look into at least urithane sideskirts and maybe the rear bumper as well if you find a combo with a front that you like. That will definatly cut down the cost of the project. Also the shop is a Wings West dealer if you are interested in their products.

Also, not to be an ass to you or anything, so please dont take this as a stab against you (a lot of people get pissy when you give them a big estimate). Please realize that paint work is NOT cheap. EXPECT a bill around a grand, if its less be happy. If you have some buddy who is gonna cut you a "deal" for next to nothing be afraid (but dont run yet). If its not gonna get painted in a professional paint booth, RUN. Also MAACO is a JOKE! once again RUN.

We will be good with it. Just to give you an idea about how picky my boss is (he does all the painting, and final finish work) we just re-painted a car basically 3 times to get the color "perfect". Joe is a perfectionist and his work definatly shows it.

Hey Greg, what day are you dropping the car off out of cureosity? I need an excuse to get the coug out of my garage for a day, and actually drive the thing instead of using it as some form of expensive bench/shelving unit.
