Colour me surprised Rolling Eyes

Edit: Also I am curious as to what they did into the red 109 for the work to have cost $93k.

Tell me about it, I could see myself paying $20-$25k on a restored Series truck but at the same time I could save $10-$15k and just do it myself. Growing up as a kid I'd help my dad work on the 109 he was restoring (we still have it) so I could rebuild one with no issues.

Well, I know of a S3 88" that racked up more than 400 hrs in the body shop, and more than 500 in the mechanical shop, originally arriving as a rolling chassis with an engine and trans fitted and the rest in boxes. The boxes weren't all of the parts needed and that was how the car arrived, so add the missing parts cost to the labor and all of sudden (well, 5 years) it was a lot of money.

Yea this is why I decided not to turn the short bus disco into a defender... Looking at all the parts I need it was starting to add up quickly. I enjoy working on them so hours of work is not a problem.. Thousands of dollars on the other hand....
