I am new to building cars so I have some basic questions.
I noticed on the GTM forum that they referred to fit/finish and paint would run 10k plus.
Is this where the body shop actually performs the work for gaping the doors/trunk/hood, smooths out imperfections in the body, then paint?
If so, all i would need to do is bolt everything on and they shop would do the rest?
First time builder! Hopefully not the last.
that's correct. I am doing Dave Borden's car in the next few weeks and will have a good idea what time and materials will look like and will have an exact price on my website for the GTM's. right now, it's kinda up in the air, but for a top quality job, if you have hung the parts but they still need trimming and fitment work, a single color I am guessing will run between $7-$9k. with stripes could be as much as $10K. this is still up in the air like I said so don't quote me on it but a good average should be about $8500. cheers, SRP
if I do all of the fitment work, including installing the rear hatch hinges, door hinges, nose hinge, latches, side windows etc, then do the body and paint work and reinstall and align the body panels, plan on spending $10k. more if we do stripes, less if you do all of the fitment and assembly work. fitment and assembly work adds up to about $3000. cheers, SRP
