    Question anyone from md-va-dc area, I need help!

    I need some help with fabrication. It is my only concern in the whole project. This is my first time doing something like this and I'm very afraid to totally mess things up. It would be great If anyone could help in the md-va-dc area. Once again, it's not that I'm lazy, it's just that I don't have any experience with this, so I'm asking experienced people for help. I can come by your place and willing to pay up to $70 for this project. I just want you to help me get started, give me some tips( create a frame that will fit my dash perfectly). This shouldn't take long. I can prime it and paint it myself. Let me know. Thanks.

    Are you willing to do the bondo, fiberglass, sanding and molding? There is a lot to creating a custom dash. $75 isnt enough for me to do it.

    I guess I could pay some more, a little over a hundred(I'm a poor student), depends how well you can do this. I'm not asking you to do the whole thing for me, just to start and give me some advises, that's about it. It shouldn't take an experienced person more than an hour on a starting process. I think this is a good deal and I will learn something too. I will bring my monitor and all the necessary tools. The dimensions and picture of my dash are here: http://mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=74880

    Thanks

    He'll have to save his money... $100 would likely cover "getting started", but I doubt it would cover "complications", "getting started"'s mean older brother that's always lurking just around the corner.

    In any case, offering cash up front is a dangerous game to play without more defined goals/an endpoint. I'd suggest that the original poster make a list of specific things he'd like accomplished before forking over that much cash.

    EDIT.

    Wow, that's an old original post. Sorry for the bump.
