      Be honest.. A solid notch of this caliber will be between $1000-$1200 with all materials and quality work! Both sides .. If you plan on installing motor mount Risers you will need both sides.. If just coils etc.. One side would be fine.. So figure half the cost..

      Well it's someone cutting and welding the frame and structural of the car.. If you want to have a good job done it has to be done right.. Safety is a risk..

      gotta make you think what? I've had my car notched by dubcreations for almost 2 years and looks just as good as day 1. Don't make other people doubt their work just because you do not agree with their price.

      The work is top notch, seams covered, etc. Keep charging what you want, let others do the same and let the people choose.

      Whoa dude... Not making any accusations here.. Relax... I'm just stating I wouldn't even get dirty for that price. No need to be a standard Vortex bully.. Tone it down Sp33dy

      I never thought I would see the day where RED spray paint and SILICONE would cost a grand. More power to you if people want to pay your STUPID price. OK Jerk JOB!!! Hit me up on MySpace when you get so talent like finger painting or pencil sharpening!!!

      You must have customers lined up for frame notches at that price. Maybe you should look into expanding.

      You mad bro!!!

      Apparently.. You don't know much.. It's seam sealer... And is used to lay over welds to protect the area. Oh and i guess using OEM Color matched paint is a bad touch too... maybe i could tape it off and spray it with bed liner...


      On top of that.. It's not $1000 for "a" notch.. It's roughly $500 per side of most cars.. And not all are that expensive. Just like everything on Vortex.. If you don't like the price don't do business with me..

      You always get what you pay for!

      Have a great day.



      OK YOU GOT ME...!! I will do it for $250.. I'll use exhaust tube(exactly what's pictured from Dub Creations), I will do shotty welds with no penetration (also pictured), and I will also hard mask and paint undercoating on it leaving the area at risk for corrosion (also pictured). If that is what you want you can HAAA DATT... I guess anyone can open a shop and put out work like that just to get their name out.. We are a QUALITY shop and you SIR are going to pay for Quality.. If someone was cutting into the frame of my car... I would never want a half ass job (pictured from DubCreations) on my ride.. To each their own..

      Price stands firm with two options..
