Other than they'll only use UPS and won't mail stuff. Have had great service out of them. Even my rear frame rails.. last pair in stock anywhere... came from Classics freight... almost over a weekend... AND I had a 25% off code!  2thumbs

Gotta be careful with UPS. They'll nail you with huge brokerage fees.

I have always had good luck when dealing with Stinger/AAR. I plan on using them again in the future for sure.

Sean says May by my birthday, I just purchased new carpet and need that installed and a new exhaust, thinking of getting a hidden stereo as well.  My new floor and wheel tubs just cleared customs today, they are supposed to be here tomorrow.  Same with the latch tray and nose cone insert from stinger/AAR.  I have already hook up my trailer to take them to Clarke Customs tomorrow.  Will take pics.

On an original Charger there is a VIN number stamped into the factory trunk well right under the same spot the weather strip glues down to on the driver side
Might want to see if that is still around on the part he cut out and weld it back in Huh

So some more big parts just arrived the floor, wheel wells, and trunk supports all from Classic Industries.  I noticed one package from classic industries says AMD. oh well.  Now one more package and I should be done I have ordered carpet and a passenger side mirror.  Guess should have ordered everything at the same time saved on brokerage fees.  Well i am an idiot I guess.Minus -21 here with the windchill -29 ouch.

what was your process of choosing this bodyshop? Did you talk to previous clients? Look at completed vehicles?

I think this is a fair question.

When I purchased the car I spoke with the president of the Edmonton MOPAR Association Jason, after buying the car he and Sean came by my house and had a look,  he actually called Sean when he showed up, we all had a couple of beers.  We talked about a new body/paint. Then Jason told me that Sean has a body shop that he works on weekends and after his regular job working at area Edmonton body shop.  To be honest I went by Sean shop and had a look on a 73 Charger he was restoring the body work and paint was amazing.  I hired him to be honest he is charging me about 1/3 of the price a regular shop would charge.  He has never lied to me and is more excited than anyone I have ever hired to work on a car. I have had multiple cars over my lifetime. Sean has never let me down.  He is a craftsman.  Since I have meet him there are other people with similar projects that want to have him work on their cars.  He has put mine on his list to be finished first.   I have seen some of his amazing skills, he has guided me through some of the process to get this car to what I want.  He has said he could patch the floor or the patch the cross member.  I have decided new parts and metal are the way to go.  I have zero issues with Sean I consider him a expert and is behind me 100% on this project.
