Re: Price help don’t want to get ripped off

Hey Johnny, I am by no means endorsing that shop. I have never seen their work. In post #9 it was stated that he saw some of their work and it was BAD. You better ask them to show you their work and give references of people you can talk to and even see the work they did. Not trying to scare you off, just be careful and don't jump in because it is cheaper. Make sure the work is quality by seeing some of the jobs they did and talking to the car owners.

The above advice is good. If it helps the car I saw had them blast it, destroyed the original roof, floors, quarters, doors, and trunk floor. The car was sent from VA on a recommendation . I don't think they did any seam sealing, they might now though. Work was done. Sent back to VA. Then sent to a shop in Connecticut to have the metal removed and replaced again. He ended up having more in body and paint when it was all said than most have in their entire builds. It is a great looking car now, but some hard lessons were learned. I can't stress enough that if you are not sure what to look for, take someone who does to whatever shop you choose. You are very young, I would hate to see you get taken advantage of and sour you from this hobby.

Re: Price help don’t want to get ripped off

I had both the floor and the trunk replaced in my 68. I stripped the car down to the bare body and delivered it to a guy I was referred to by a friend. I realized when I got there that I forgot the new seat mounts so had to go back to my house - an hour later I arrived and the guy had already cut the entire floor out with a plasma cutter. Anyway, he put about 20 hours into the entire project and it cost me about $1200 plus about $800 in parts. I was lucky to find someone that really knew 1st gen Camaros (he had a 69 SS that was really, really nice). He welded in the floor and trunk, cut the hole for the shifter and even put the other various holes needed for the console. Now, he had this huge garage attached to his house, so was just doing the work on the side, but it was a hell of a deal, given how bad the car was. Years later, I'm still working on getting the car back on the road, but I know the body and floors are rock solid. Check around with local car clubs and get at least one or two more quotes...
