You will totally know a $500 job from an expensive job. The cheap job will have a bunch of overspray, and the paint will not have that nice even look.

And BTW, I am also not doubting your mechanical ability, but I think you are going to totally blow your budget once you start to amass the parts required to complete this project.

At the rate these car's prices are rising, I know that Stock is not sexy, but Stock returns your investment, while a "tribute" languishes at the low end of the market.

Have you considered putting this car back to stock, and then impressing folks with your financial acumen?

But for now, on to bolting on all my new suspension toys!
