Huge expense , especially paying others to do.. if you are pretty handy with the spanners and have time and space maybe try it yourself?

Are we looking at somewhere around the £10k mark for a full underbody restoration? I know the rear chassis legs + fitment alone isn't cheap.

Well Iím not fast by any means, but the hours alone Iíve put in would be a ton of money. If itís chassis legs then obviously thatís huge work on top!

Iíd say 10 is easily achieved

Total guessing as to what state each car is in...and depends how "mint" you want the car to be at the end..2 FULL chassis legs is a big job and then painting the boot floor....you might get away with partial rear sections which are easier,but still weld to the floor.

Ive done it...twice! (check out my resto thread)....you simply cant put a price on it...as you might want to refurb the diff/suspension/vapour blast arms/powder coat/brake lines/refurb or new fuel tank/zinc bolts/new exhaust..etc.etc.etc

10k "seems" a decent chunk..you might have change,you might need another 2-3k.

(took me months and im a panel beater of 27 years!...but hard to bolt dirty rusty crap parts back onto a fresh underneath..so factor in time/cost to get bits refurbed)

I thought it would be something like that, shame they don't come better protected from factory!

I've had a look through your thread, your car is really nice, well impressed with the work you've done on it. I can see what you mean with not wanting to put crappy old bolts back on a good as new shell. You've gone so far so may aswell go the whole hog at that point.

Autotorque have done quite a few underbody restorations, top quality work. Have a look on their instagram page for some examples.
