Your pictures should hopefully fix themselves over the next 4 days or so. If they don't please pm me and I'll have a look.
All newly posted picture links should now work normally.
By the way, with postimage pics if you use the "hotlink for forums" link you'll get the larger pictures.
It’s difficult to say. My bill for the bodywork element of the above is £2100 - it was based purely on hours worked. In addition I have a days strip down and rebuild for BMR which is probably fairly fixed.
The time taken by the body shop is dependent on what they find and how far you want to go to fix it. I’m my case, they found the worst ever installed plates which were sealed with some nasty black stuff, they had to grind this all off which are some of the earlier pics you’ll see.
They then reinstalled new plates and installed the upper front gusset cups. All these extra things were included in that 2100. If you already had plates and weren’t installing gusset cups the underneath tear down recondition and rebuild would probably be 1200 in Bodyshop time plus the BMR mechanical time.
The rust on mine was exclusively surface rust, and so removal and repair was not especially time consuming. All the extra time came from having to grind off the old plates and poor welding, treat the surface left behind and get it to a point where the redish plates could be properly installed - as you can see in the pics.
