    2 different quotes in this area, I dont want to publicly call them out because some people said its a high quote, but I can PM your their info.
    It was about 1000 in total labor, tax as far as I can tell, but its hard to say how much they are getting parts for. I can build the parts on summit and jegs for about 1500.

    Thanks for compliment, its a sloowwwww moving project. I had hoped to get more done over this winter, but I just havent had much time lately.

    Recently I bought the "new" AMD fenders, i heard that they redesigned them, and I have become progressively frustrated with the patch panels I was working on. So far they look pretty good. There is a little bit of a gap issue by the door, but with some more fiddling it think I can reduce that. I havent really spent a whole lot of time messing with alignment.

    I keep pushing forward towards painting...I think I can, I think I can....

    Ive been removing door parts, removing the door panels, accessories, this trim piece was interesting to remove. Thanks to the Nastyz28 facebook page, I got some good tips to remove.

    Why not just use the "upload a file" button?

    interestingly this passenger side mirror was pop riveted on, we had quite a talk about it on facebook. It appears that the Van Nuys plant might have added this on, and used pop rivets to secure it, Norwood plant apparently used screws to hold it on.

    bought these Hotchkis sub-frame connectors for 250 on craigslist locally, brand new. Pretty good deal! Going to add to the list of things I need to do!
