Would have thought €8500 would still be pricey for a TT!

Anyways - good luck with the new purchase Op. look forward to the reveal!

Looking at their website on the sign, it doesn't exist?

I've been quoted some eye-watering numbers to get my T2 van done. 15-20k in Ireland. Would be very interested for a top job at 10k.

Jucko,
I think i know the story on that one
Somebody bought a resto project from abroad, It turned out to be porous, another was bought , so a make two into one is in progress.
it seems to me , having gotten involved in a resto, and reading forums
that a full body resto is only financially viable on a high value car. or one or sentimental value to the client.

If you ,or I buy an already restored car from an enthusiast, you get the work already done for very little!!

Regards

Its doubtful that full body restos will ever be financially viable on the majority of classic cars.

Whether they be exceptional marques or not. Run of the mill classics, will always be more costly

to restore, than buying an already restored one. Exceptional classics will always command exceptional

resto costs by their nature of rarity of parts and car. That does not mean that this cost is recoupable on sale.

I would say that classic car ownership is an expensive hobby, unless you can do a lot of your own restoration

work.And an enthusiast will never recoup his labour cost, but of course they are not in it for that.

My mam had one in the late 80 when I was a kid.
I remember lifting up the mats in the back and watching the road wizz by through the rust holes!
My ma said she caught me pushing crisp packets out onto the road once.
then my sister learned to drive in one around 2003,2004.
When she got her next car it sat in the garden for 3,4,5 years and rotted away unfortunately.

So, as it's the same owner here as in Poland. Does he/she come out to look at your car in Ireland, and give you a quote (as best they can).
