I think Sachse Rod Shop wanted 35-40k for the complete resto. The 15-20 was just for the body work and paint. The trouble is most of us live on a VW budget.

    You're going to get very few places in Texas that do VWs for a
    single price.  Unfortunately though any place that quotes you is
    always estimating their labor on the high side.  If I had the
    money and were in your shoes I'd ship it out to Lenny at WCC in
    Cali.  At least that way it would be out of sight and out of mind,
    but it would be correct and finished when it returned.

        Thanks! I'll check them out. Sachse Hot Rod shop is the real
        deal but I think it might be a bit overkill to go that route.
        I would still need someone to do the interior after dropping
        all that cash. I am leaning towards trailering it up to
        Sewfine after it's painted.
        I have heard of a place called Yo Boys past Lavon recommended
        by a VW guy in Nevada, Tx.
        Anyone heard of them?

            I went to Sachse Hot Rod Shop for a bid.
            They wouldn't give me one, all they talked about is how
            far down I want to take it and what there hourly rates
            were. I ran away very fast.
            I just got my bus out of the shop, I used Dallas Roadster
            in Plano TX.
            I am very impressed with the work that was done.
            Rust, body work, paint and they installed my safari
            windows and they did in in just over 30 days.
            I would recommend them.

                .... damn. I went to Sachse Hot Rod Shop
                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.
