Thank you everyone for responding, I’m admittedly a noob and everything anyone/ everyone has to say matters! The car is in western US registered as VW, and I’m faced with the challenging decision of whether (or not) to invest $8K to purchase. To be 100% candid, I don’t know enough about these outside of fascination and curiosity to be educated at the level I’d like to be and therefore am relying on the good natured folks on this site to teach me what I need to know in short order. It’s not an ideal circumstance I know, but nonetheless it’s the situation I’m in, so thank you again for input.
If I had to ask 2 main questions, it’s these:
1. Would you pay $8K for this?
2. From a body perspective, what would it cost to get it right (from where it’s at)?
