When I was looking around, KCW etc. this was about what I was being quoted. My bus is banged-up/rusty enough - with my goal being to drive it, not sell it - that I couldn't rationalize spending that much. But again I only have a walk-around 21 window; maybe I'd have a different perspective with a walk-thru 23 window. :-)

.... damn. I went to Sachse Hot Rod Shop http://www.sachserodshop.com/
and they have some top notch restos coming outta there. They want to dip it and quoted me 15-20k for the minimum and 35-40k for the full concourse resto and at least a year...that doesn't include the headliner. I think I need to have a garage sale.

Another option was a collision shop and he wants 10k but that doesn't include the suspension or the powder coating or interior. A friend of mine is impressed with his work but I wasn't able to see any finished projects yesterday. 3 month turn around

The last place we went to was a very nice shop in Lewisville called Dusold.
I got a good vibe from that place. He will call with an estimate on Monday Min 20k.
