Re: [DML] Re: Rule of 20 (now Rule of 25)



I would have to agree with Rich.

When I bought my D in 2000 I was seeing labor rates of around $60/hour. 
Now I'm being quoted $90 - $100. This will certainly exaggerate the 
price to restore a beater to something that is usable.

In my limited experience, working with just one car, even $25K is a 
conservative figure
