      Just how much do you think he's paying for all this?

      As far as I know, it's going to run him, at a proper shop, about $1k/ corner for quarters, probably another $1k for shaving bumper, another $1k for boser ... Maybe they did the trunk for free

      This is even before paint, which may run up to $2-4k

      So he's $10k in fr all this, and I'm bing somewhat conservative.

      But again, if you want to go all out, this is how it should be done.

      But everything looks legit, and this definitely is the right way to go

      Thanx man. This is really taking a long time though. I started getting very inpatient. I just cant wait for my car to be all done.
      Im just hoping it will be ready for waterfest at-least. I was looking forward to making it to this show with my car at-least for this year. I missed all other meets and shows this year.

      Same here, I wasn't actually planning to do to my car what I ended up doing. Come winter, a few more things. I'm hoping for some long drives starting next spring!
