Well, I guess I am curious about how he plans on doing that since last I heard my car still isn't finished.

Well Rich I really don't think he will do anything to my car until yours is done.I guess that's why he didn't reply to my 17 Sept of wanting my car back.I don't think he has the parts I gave him money for back on the 9th of Mar.I'm going out there Thursday to get an answer in writing on when he will have my car done.

Most people never think of this including me but getting a 'completed by' date is a good idea. If whoever is unwilling, keep looking. I also would like to know if you can do staggered payments. At each phase of construction, you pay for only the next step. I know doing a frame off restoration that's pretty much the accepted method of payment.

Hope you guys are on the road soon.

That's one reason I asked about 'pay as you go'. If everything is paid up front and the job doesn't get completed you're screwed. I don't mean this as a negative comment, only that the guy could die, business could burn down or many other things could happen.

I had an engine built, actually two of them and never paid a dime up front.

Chris doesn't have the capital to put out for parts.That's whe he wants the money up front.
I did assure me my car would be ready by the 17th. only time will tell if that happens.He wants to get my car and Rich's car out of the shop because he is closing the doors in Bluntstown the end of the month and will have a shop in Tallahassee.I know one thing I'm not going to be making a round trip of over 200 miles to have any work done.

That's a long haul. Hope that thing gets done and doesn't need any tweaking later on. Rich and Thunder are also out there. Anyone else?
