For the first build, time and materials, giving free materials and billing 20 cents an hour, it would be outrageously expensive.
We all know what it takes to do a one off deal.

And YES I do know what you're talking about Mr. Admin Sir, when have you ever known me to keep my keyboard under control? :roll:

$250 in the plug, $650 in resin and glass, and about $100 in various supplies. Sandpaper, rollers, brushes and ect.

$900.00 all together is really quite inexpensive. I'm pretty surprised that it's so low a number. If the mold holds up, you can easily recoup your money with a couple of bodies. Buying in bok will further reduce your costs. I don't know if this was part of your plan, but it sure seems like a viable option...

Yea P-Dog, I know what you're saying and you know what I'm saying... Hmmm. Stalemate!

Honestly the most expensive part of all of this is resin. Joint compound, plywood and rattle can paint are cheap.

Sneak peek of the mold. I am so happy with how well it pulled. This time next week I intend on sending you a pick of a body on the car!
