I would say the final cost will depend on how much rust is found. Does it have a sunroof?

Well I'm just sending mine off tomorrow but I have removed all windows and trim my self and the bay was sprayed earlier in the build so it's just all the outside of the car and he said 2000 but that being worst case like. Now I have all the rust done so ther should be know surprises like so I am hopeing for it to come in around 1650ish so depending on your paint choice and if he is doing it all then 3-4k for a serious job IMO

very little rust, couple of tiny tiny bubbles on drivers side rear arch just coming up , scuttle floors and boot are perfect , and it does have a sunroof . main reason is the paint (zinnobar red) is tired in places

Thanks that's after 5 hours of washing , paint renovater ,polish and waxing , but in doing this is when you spot all the issues that need sorting

yeah love the wheels they are the correct size width and offset as per ac schnitzer catalogue to go with ac mirrors and ac strut braces front and rear
