We hate bureaucracy as much as you do and certainly understand that you are probably asking yourself why we want you to jump through all these hoops. Our hope is that, by asking you to fill out the information below, through that process you'll find out whether or not it makes sense to do your project.
Up until today, I have personally reviewed, read, emailed, or called every single applicant back. Unfortunately most of the applicants are asking for unreasonable things. Our shop is not a “cut rate” backyard bubba mechanic shop that uses junk yard parts and yet most of the applicants ask for that exact approach to building “their car” as they feel they are somehow different and should get the 10 cents on the dollar build. We CANNOT restore ANY car for 10 to 20 thousand dollars and would respectfully ask that all of these completely unreasonable requests stop. In your submission, I provide an historical average of labor hours based on main stream restorations and our rates run 75-85 per hour. Please take a moment and determine whether your request is reasonable. In the future all unrealistic requests will be completely ignored. If you chose not to provide a realistic budget that you are prepared for then I’ll assume you have no budget and that request will also be ignored.
You need to provide a schedule that you can and WILL answer your phone. Over NINETY PERCENT of our attempts to contact customers are met by call screening voicemails. We will only call 2 to 3 times and if we don't get through we'll consider the project dead and delete it. Provide what days and what times you WILL answer a call from a 757 area code.
If you find at the end of the form you are not sure your project is a good idea, you will know why we asked you to do this.
If you find at the end of the form that you are sure your project is a good idea then you will have saved both yourself and Dan a lot of time when it comes to discussing your project.>
If you are having problems using this form, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, number and a good time for us to call and assist you in working through this form.
I look forward to discussing your project with you. Please address questions and issues before work commences.
