In the restoration business it is tough to write an accurate estimate for repairs, there are too many
unknown issues with an old car so beware of shops that claim to be able to do that. What usually happens is a shop that gives
a firm bid to do a restoration will have to cut corners along the way that could compromise the project or they have
to bid the job so high they are sure to make money , i on the other hand believe it's better to simply charge for the actual
hours spent on the project that way it comes out fair for both the customer and the shop. I can do "ballpark"
estimates but i have to see the project first and in some cases the car needs taken apart and stripped before i can do that.
