Re: My Web Site is UPDATED!!
I couldn't possibly tell you how much it has cost upto now, but the panel shop will set me back not a penny less than 20k. It may go higher yet, depends on one or two things yet. The parts cost has been a total blow out too, I am actually deliberatly not going to check to see what parts are costing, cause it will give me the sh!ts badly. When I did my last GT, the parts were barely 5 percent of their cost now. Damm e-bay and profiteers.
I am aiming to have a car that looks at least as good as that yellow glo RPO 83 that sold last year for a tad under 75k. That car is my 'yard stick'....
When I bought mine, I thought I got the buy of the year, but when we stripped the jam from it, then we knew lots needed to be fixed. I wanted to buy one for 25k (14 months ago), this should have got me a ripper car, but nothing right came along. The car I got was a long shot, not really for sale, been owned by same guy 15 years, had tons of money spent on it etc etc Got it for one fifth of that budget, so body wise it is still on the money, just all the finnishing off bits and bobs that are the blow out.
I will guess (very wild guess this is) the total job will be between 30k and 40k. It will be a tight car though.....
