    Do you think the quality of the work done was better or worse than what you might get in the US? It looks like there was lot'o metal work, and didn't seem to be toooo much Bondo. Any feedback?

    Looks like very good quality body work as far as I can tell. They filled in the holes with lead whereas just about everybody uses putty for that in this country. Metal is always better since it flexes.

    lovin it, yes i also think that the body work was probably better since they took the time to correctly fill it in, which as said is a lost art in the states
