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.

Will: I have sort of been trying to stay outta this debate. but I seem to remember that I recommended L Coop as a possibility. Do you have any idea what Lenny would charge for a complete turn-key resto of a 21? My guess is start at $50,000 and go up depending.--- On *Mon, 6/1/09, w.wood /<evil.scientist.boo@xxxxxxxxx>/* wrote: From: w.wood <evil.scientist.boo@xxxxxxxxx> Subject: [tcb] Re: Shopped my 23 Window around the body shops yesterday...

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.

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? --- On *Sat, 5/30/09, Fred McDonald /<texasbluebus@xxxxxxxxx <http://us.mc833.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=texasbluebus@xxxxxxxxx>>/* wrote: From: Fred McDonald <texasbluebus@xxxxxxxxx <http://us.mc833.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=texasbluebus@xxxxxxxxx>> Subject: [tcb] Re: Shopped my 23 Window around the body shops yesterday...

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. ----- Original Message ----- *From:* James Dwan <http://mc/compose?to=james_dwan_2000@xxxxxxxxx> *To:* tcb@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <http://mc/compose?to=tcb@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> *Sent:* Saturday, May 30, 2009 11:15 AM *Subject:* [tcb] Shopped my 23 Window around the body shops yesterday... .... 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. http://www.dusolddesigns.com/ I got a good vibe from that place. He will call with an estimate on Monday Min 20k. Wow...-- My Email Moniker http://www.findinternettv.com/Video,item,1570570433.aspx
