I have realized that time is something I don't have enough of at the moment, and have concluded that in order to get my 5 back on the road within a reasonable time frame, I need to get someone to do the restoration for me.
It is literally a basket case, everything is in pieces. Absolutely everything must be done, but all parts are there and it in pretty good condition as well. Quite a bit of welding has to be done on the body tub, but the outer panels seem to be in pretty good shape.
Obviously I need to set up a budget, but I have no good indications how much this will set me back worst case scenario. Anyone have some figures, and/or experience who wants to share some information? The intention is to do it back to original condition, with some tech upgrades of course, but mostly reuse parts that are good, and buy new replacements where needed.
I have looked at a couple of "low cost" options both in Poland and Lithuania, anyone with experience or references?
I would much prefer to have it done in the UK, but in the end it will all come down to the budget and cost picture.
Oh, I forgot to mention that the car is in Oslo, so I need to have it transported as well, to either UK or Poland/Lithuania/Whereever, anyone with connection in that trade?
Any input highly appreciated.
