So true...that's one of the reasons I I prefer to do as much from the frame up myself as I can...(there are other reasons as well but this is one). So many people I know will spend between $20K and $30K on and engine, $9K on a transmission and it goes on and on....but when it comes to spending $15K to $20K on the body....well, I get "that's way to much, I've built 20 cars and never spent that much (this is the guy that hasn't built any but pays to subcontract a build), how do you sleep at night". I find that if I give a quote for an entire project, the money for the body and paint doesn't seem that bad. It's worked well on 2 large builds in the past and the one that I'm doing now (the latest one is an old customer that I've done work for in the past and he's the guy that gave me the idea).
