If it is assembly line metal from the same car -- you are looking at 200 hours from bare metal to painted - I have done enough first gen F bodies to know the numbers- that is no metal replacement and no heavy collision damage...
You need the body the subframe rad support and whatever bushings you are using.
Like it came out of the Fisher Body paint shop with all sealers and undercoating in the wheel wells, firewall black outs correct dash paint - PTB stampings etc supplies will run 3000- ish.
Min - 15 k -up to 25k

IF you know all the processes it is as easy doing them 100% correct -as it is doing it wrong.
68 GTO HO 4 spd Alpine Blue /Parchment 2 owner car
71 Corvette LT1 45k miles Orig paint - Brandshatch Green - National Top Flight
NUMEROUS Lemans blue Camaros,
Monza Red and Daytona Yellow Corvettes
& a Chevelle or two...
Survivors, restored cars, & other photos
