Often the same guy who tells you he can't afford a 1500 custom built subframe will easily spring for a set of billet wheels and matching tires that cost twice that and never flinch at that price.
Or the simple FACT that buying the wrong frame, rebuilding it and having to buy new parts on the car like the radiator because it hits the frame or some goofy stuff like that you end up saving NOTHING. It would have been cheaper to build the thing right.
