I wish you luck, also would be neat if you could come out to Olcott car show next year, on a clear day you can see Toronto from the park where it is held. That is where they filmed mostly for second movie.
I second that -- when the horror story of this body shop is behind you, it would be great if you could join BB2K movie cars 43 and 66 and maybe a Monaco or two next year. Olcott, New York, is just east of Buffalo. The show should be on Saturday, September 5th (2020).
The reason I didn't go to Maaco in the first place had to do with body rot. My Crown Victoria is a native New England car, and as a result, it has some rot that needs to be fixed. Both front fenders have to be replaced, as well as other rust outs along the car. I have used this present shop before to repair frame rot on the Crown Victoria, and he did a very good job on it. He offered to paint the car sometime down the line, and when I told him that I was going to convert it into the Bluesmobile, he got very excited. So I decided to to give him the job. This was before he lost his entire work crew. As far as I know, the only two still working there are his brother and himself. So I will have to ride it out.

I was able to upload the car which we soon hope to see as a Blues Brothers 2000 clone.
Regarding frame rot, in the past I have gone to welding shops for frame repair. NY winters are not good to these cars.
Regarding shop, I have places I go to as well and sometimes when they get used to you, especially if you are getting a good deal. Sometimes they lower your priority at bit to handle others. If you like them and they like you well patience is golden.
Sometimes the wait is long though say a year or two, in that case you may want to rethink your plan.
I wish you well though and hope to hear updates as you come along. Most times I stick it out in that case, only rarely to I pull the car.
