So I took my 34, (in the avatar), to a well known shop for an estimate to complete. His work is top shelf. I asked in another post about shop rates. He is located very rural in Washington state, and he is $60 an hour with two shop guys. Gave him a list of what I thought needs to be done to make it a driver, not Riddler contender at all. I'll just say that there is not a lot of fab work left, just some sheet metal work in the trunk area and some R/W to the firewall. Needs deck lid, hood, battery/cable installed, R/W gas door-antenna, R/W brakes that don't work, complete dash/gages, wire it, install side glass channels, install seats and other small installations plus paint and upholstery. I have all the parts needed to complete it, there is not much to buy on his part. Not putting him or his work down at all, but the 20 to 40K he quoted me, puts this average guy back on the tools myself, and at 74 maybe I'll finish it before I croak of maybe I won't. At the very least, I will stay busy. Please do not think I'm complaining, I know this hobby is expensive.
