The sheet metal was media blasted and primed before we arrived in Newberry, Michigan, for protection from the natural elements. Per the client some areas will repaired in a custom fashion, i.e. the cowl vent will be smoothed out, since we are installing AC, and the drip rail will be deleted, both giving a sleeker look. The other areas shown below will be rebuilt to original specifications.
