someone from your area will have to answer that, because prices are all over the place depending on location, cost of living etc..

Probably going to be pretty pricey due to the time involved. I am willing to bet from the pics there are going to be rust holes when the areas are ground down, which means at the least welding in patches. Another thing is going to find a shop that will take it. A typical bodyshop doesn't take work like that unless they are slow, because it ties up the shop, and they make better money on collision repair. California labor rates are all over the place, from $80/hr in sanfrancisco to $38/hr in other areas. It might be worth taking it to another area if you find a shop to do it. If not you might have to take it to a place that specializes in restoration whos labor rates are normally higher. Its hard to tell without seeing the vehicle and a few pictures, but I'll take a stab and say maybe around 3,000-5,000 depending where you go. Just a guess. The glass you might want to check with some windshield places. Most bodyshops farm out the glass removal, and may be less expensive just going straight to the glass shop. Hopefully it is not rusting under the glass at all.
