at a shop charging $100/hour that's only 165 hours
Don't forget the cost of the panels the shop has to fit as well.
HOLY S()T, I dont even charge my customers that much!! WOW
I hear you - Mini-Tubs are at most a 40 Hour Job
Well you have to account California rates lol. One place I think was called Coach Works charged $120hr.
Yeah, it wasn’t cheap. Basically disassemble rear suspension, clean it up, cut old out and install tubs. Then for the Quadra link, cutting the frame frames, welding in all the brackets...yeah a lot. I checked out my share of possible locations and all the same hourly quotes.
Even at 40 hours that’s a $4800 tab
Depending on your state you might have to register it as a 2019 with all the BS that is required. I know they do that with some kit cars.
My bet is they will get a vin/title/trim tag from a donor and install it,unless the body supplier somehow lets the "authorities" know who they sell them too.Even then I'm sure the states aren't concerned about it,only when it becomes a criminal matter after the fact IE fraud/etc.They have WAAAY bigger fish to fry.
I commonly see 69 Camaro "title with extras" sold/advertised, even on e-bay,one sold for $1,250,now nooobodys going to pay that for a lone title.The listing also gave trim tag details and that it was a base v-8 car not a copo or x code etc- Was sold for "historical" purposes only-LOL-Later Steve!!
A cowl replacement panel seems to always get some negative comments on here because of removing and reinstalling the VIN but using a "donor" car for the firewall and cowl/VIN panel and this "tub" is better? I don't get it. I definitely understand the appeal of it though. All brand new sheet metal and no rust to contend with would be nice.
I see the majority of buyers of these and the first gens are going to swapping VINs. Now I know that’s a contentious topic, but if your car is swiss cheese And you transfer everything on to this body and scrap the remaining parts from the other car, I really don’t see an issue with it. It’s a age old debate what is ok and what is not. I have seen article write-ups on cars that the only OEM piece of sheet metal on the car are the floor braces. Moving a dash and vin over to a solid replacement body versus building metal around a dash and Vin is the same thing. Your not really swapping vins, your replacing all the bad metal.
this is basically how grave yard cars restores all those Mopars
what a nice lawn ornament that would be
