We are at 650.00 for CM 6 point. That may go up soon as material cost has gon up. Mini tubs start at 500.00 and go up from there. Depends on how much tub work you want.

That does not include the carpet or paint. We can do that for a few bucks more.

Paint and carpet you can do yourself. I've helped my buddy, get some boat paint, and brushes, Some Ozite carpet will make the car look sick and be the lightest avalible.

The boat paitn I used is an epoxy urethane, and is pretty durable stuff. With the exception of where the window net bar hits the side bar, it's really not even scratched.

PITA to do with the brushes, but for the most part it came out pretty good.

I was gonna ask that earlier where you could get a minitub job doe for that kind of $, becuase that's around a 1500 dollar job give or take up this way too.

Wow that is cheap (650.00) What is you turn-around time on a CM 6 point. What is your hourly rate if you dont mind me asking?

I paid $1400 for my 6 point chromoly with the seat braced and belts mounted.
The guy I went to is known to be pricey but does great work

Looks like we need to raise prices. 650.00 will get a 6 point moly cage installed. we do not do the interior work or paint work at this rate. Turn around is 2 weeks or less. We can add swing outs.

On the tubs, we are at 1500.00+ for a full tub. For 500.00 you get a partial mini tub. That will clear a 28x10.50X fine. It is close on a 29x10.50. The full tub is of course a lot more work and effort. The tub work does not include any paintes surface work.

My car already has a 6 point chromoly Wolfe roll bar in it and it's been mini-tubbed to fit a 30x10.5x15 Hoosier Drag Slick or 29.5x10.5x15 ET Drag with no problem. I was trying to price my drag car body fair and it's clear those 2 items pay for itself.
