Thanks - 3 months restore - of course up close you see all the small chips and belmishes that 123K miles of driving over 31 years has caused - but the paint is in fantastic condition.

This winter I'll be looking for a new windshield. The garage that did the mechanic restore got rock damage while out test driving. I wouldn't hold THAT against them, crap happens, but instead of notifying me, or contacting a glass shop that knows what they are doing, they used a "do it yourself" kit to fix the chip - which of course is about dead center on the windshield if you drew an X across the glass. The repair is horribly low quality, and my glass guy said I've got no options.

Windshield isn't quite unobtanium, but see no sense in putting one in and potentially getting a rock through it while I enjoy the summer.

On the subject of...I think I need to take it for a drive today - so perfectly sunny out and I adore rowing my own gears.
