I don't think "living on a VW budget" is living is it?

I think Sachse Rod Shop wanted 35-40k for the complete resto.  The 15-20 was

$50,000 and go up depending.

   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.
