Nothin for Nothin, but I would recommend doing the build yourself, almost everything you need is available here at the GBFans.com online store, and its actually easier than it looks. I'm about 85% completed with my 1st build, and its going very well, its intimidating at 1st but I promise take your time, buy lots of loc-tite epoxy putty, a good set of spade bits, a solid assortment of tapping bits, about 5-6 cans of satin black spray paint, and you'll do just fine. before each step search the boards or ask a question the group on here is extremely helpful and friendly. I will say though..... it's not cheap to go authentic or at least for me semi-authentic. so prepare to buy parts in pieces, and for the build to take some time ( my ETA on completion is 11 months from the day I drilled my 1st hole) but its extremely rewarding. and you'll be much happier with it when you did it yourself. anyone who builds it for you will never love it as much as you do..... just sayin...... Good Luck! OH!!! PS. Surfboard ding repair UV setting resin is great for fixing chips and dings in the shell.... believe me if you stripped the paint of f of mine.... just about every corner is resin repaired lol.
