Re: [DMCForum] Re: DeLorean price???



When we decided to get into the fascia refinishing business a few years back, it was because Rob had a garage full of them to restore.  We took 14 that we could fit in the truck, and had a hell of a time with those.  People are very excited to spend $300 on a refinished fascia...but they expect it to look new, when it will in no way play that part.

We got out of the business because we couldn't make people happy doing what we were doing, and we had no way of improving our process without hours and hours of time into each fascia, and then we'd have to charge a lot more than $1000 apiece for them.

  This is why Yahoo is such a dated forum, no edit abilities. I posted
  it again with the mistake.

  Should have said DMCH show car.


  And what's with KAPAC throwing fascias in a wood chipper??? WTF?? Were
  there that many at one point? And who could have been so short sighted
  to not realize there are no more parts left, and not to destroy them?
