    I've given in - hiring someone to complete the mounting of my 355 body

    I just finished off a website contract ( http://www.eastcoastfashion.com/shop/ ) and now have some cash to pay for the work needed to be done to my car. I am trying to compile a list of what will be required, so I can make sure I'm not stuck with anything I can't finish myself.

    I'm just looking for some input from those who have completed their own 355 IFG Spyder Clones:

    - Align body panels
    - Fabricate brackets, fiberglass brackets into body and bolt onto frame (In other words, mount body)
    - Trunk frame: Weld together trunk frame, fiberglass trunk frame into trunk piece, attach(hinge) trunk to body
    - Hood - Attach Hood hindges/hood
    - Mount Headlights
    - Extend Gas filler pipe to new location
    - Attach to car framing to mount driving lights / turn signals to.
    - Metal Framework for Dashboard
    - Fabricate convertible frame

    I will not be paying for the body work to be done, as I just can't afford that and will need to do it myself :P (That's when your going to get a call Eddie )

    Thanks,
    Ari

    Ari:

    That looks like a good method to our madness with these cars. I know of several people including myself who have subbed out work to others to get over a hump in a project. What you’re describing should only cost between $500 and $800 US and will take them only a few days.

    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.
