So how was your trip? and what was your impression of Tony's work? I
assume you saw some finished product while there...  let me know
when you're returning for pick-up and I'll try to meet you, if you have
time.

Overall, a very nice job on this bumper. Tony and Alex are decent guys...I like them and would bring them more work.

Took two hours to fight with my bumper to strip all the crap off of it.

Loaded up and headed for the border early Saturday morning.
Just like the bank--only one open.
Luckily,the wait was short.

Two hours from my house I arrived at Sandy's Bumper Mart
Good trip,good weather,and good tunes blasting on the sattelite radio.
Thanks to DelaT (my friend Theo) for letting me use his truck--plus I dropped off his bumpers for his 70 Newpie vert at the same time.

I met Sandy and his two sons,Tony and Alex.
Very hard to find people to work in a chroming place..it is more an art form than a trainable profession.
Tony was happy to show me around and allowed me to take pictures.
 Thanks Tony!!

Behind the wall of the drop off is the prep and finish area.
This is where all the grinding,straghtening,and final polish is done.
They do stainless steel polishing here as well.
