The '81 I purchased had a crack on the front bumper, seller said he'd get it fixed, or knock a grand off the selling price if I did. Sooo.....for $650, I got it fixed. I'm quite happy, turned out nice.

Looks good.

My dad backed up into my MX-6 many moons ago. I took it to a chain body shop with a manager who seemed to love his job. After picking it up, the manager explained how they double coated the lower part of the door to match the other side. Dad couldn’t believe how responsible the price was.

Glad you found a good shop.
