All I can say is I think it will be almost impossible to build an RS rep with OEM parts in the USA for under 20K (i'm including the cost of the car in here)

Maybe I will post a final cost when I'm done but I don't even want to know right now

One thing I need to start doing is recording my time!
i didnt think it would be cheap i was just curious, and deff wanna see the amount of time you've put into it. i went to school for this and worked in a body shop for a few years and know the amount of tedious labor you're going through. itll deff be worth it in the end

I might take a look at these but getting the car on the road right now is the main priority.

This is taking me a little longer then it should but I am learning some things along the way and I like things to be perfect. I also have been paying for things along the way so its kind of a build as the money comes in kind of deal.
