There is never a dumb question!

as far as what you asked about what it would cost for a frame build. I can tell you my truck project that i am currently working had a frame with all the original suspension, paid 1000.00 for the whole truck, took cab off and down to bare frame, spent $300 on IFS for this specific truck, and found a junkyard found rearend for $150 in great shape and knew the guys that sold it to me. now as for the cost total for me was about 1400, not adding the additional expenses for materials need for doing frame fab and completions. as i had to do. i can't tell you what it cost for materials to build your own frame rails, i would consider finding a donor car that would be compatible with what you want to build.That is just me. i gave you my 2cents, hope you can work it out, really like to see what kind of project you plan on building. Well take care and good luck. Sincerely Bill and Jack Taylor (father and son duo 38 Chevy pickup project.)
