I am restoring a '66 AH Sprite that has been a 30 year project. Now that I am retired, I am putting more effort into the project. I have most subsystems ready to go - just have to do the body work, paint and reassemble. The painting will be the big chanllenge. I moved about a year ago so I don't know the paint shops in this area yet. I have pretty well decided that painting in a garage in a subdivision is out of the question. I'm located in Mid-Michigan. British cars seems to be scarce here, but there's no lack of big Detroit iron! LOL

Welcome, Tim. There are several Forum members in your area, and I'm sure you'll be running across them here soon. Now that you're retired, you can spend more time on that which REALLY matters!

Welcome aboard, Tim. Just where are you located? I know of a few good body / paint shops in my area. (30 miles N of Ann Arbor.) One in particular specializes in British cars.
