    Its just amazing how much some people will pay in LABOR. I saw another one that had a labor bill of $250,000, after the body work was already done.

    I can't believe they flange-welded the tub filler strip instead of butt-welding it. I'm also amazed how much fab work they did after the car was painted and assembled, like exhaust, console, etc. Seems like they would have done that before paint and assembly. It turned out nice but I'll bet it cost a bundle.

    I guess the guys and gal on this forum are the only ones who know that if you want it done right, do it yourself.

    Laszlo I bet they never gave it any thought. How often do we watch any of the so called automotive/hotrod type shows and see all kinds of things most here would never do.
