Thanks guys,we are getting started on putting the new master cylinder under the floor with a new pedal and proportioning valve.

The owner is supposed to get some tires and rims for the rear so we can sit it down and I can finish the panhard rod,that should finish the welding under the car.

Tray,take 32 east out of cincinnati about 90 miles and we will put it in the shop and start....although I thought you just wanted a cage,are you changing your mind?....maybe a backhalf?

One more thing,I have a question for you guys,we have drummed up quite a bit of work for cages so I was looking for an easy way to price them and I came up with $50 a weld....so for example a 6-point rollbar w/seatbrace would be 12 welds or $600,that does not include the cost of the cage just floor plates and the labor to install it,and all welding will be with the TIG process,does that seem like a fair price and a simple offer......please be honest if you think that is expensive than by all means tell me so,we are looking to make it worthwhile to ourselves,but not to overcharge others.

Seems fair on the price, most shops in the Mi. area do it for $100. a point, and then additionals if wanted by the owner, gotta pay for the gas, wire, time, and some brewskies and a footlong sub or two =; =; =;

Thanks for the reply,
Yea I've got to buy the gases for the welders, wire, saw blades, holesaws for the joint jiggers,grinding wheels,wire wheels,plus maintain the equipment.....I don't look to get rich but its something that I like to do and it would be nice to provide a service and maybe make a little racecar money in the process......looks like there will be more Mustangs moving into the shop #-o

I guess that you are just going to have to come to National Trails in Cols.,Oh.,I know that I can make it there and I will bring a whole crew that owes me a favor.....heck I can probably get you a foot massage between rounds,while drinking an iced tea with a little umbrella in it!!
