potentially a difficult question here. It's looking like I'm going to be moving out of state for a new job here in the next few months, which is throwing a big wrench into projects I have going on. For one, my Scout II. I recently had the engine rebuilt and remounted, but all the ancillary stuff, like radiator hoses, wiring, etc, has to be either redone or rehooked up.
Now this is a basic set up, nothing particularly difficult, and the majority of work has been finished. I'm considering paying someone to finish it off for me.
This would include:
- reinstalling the radiator
- reinstalling the heater and core
- installing a newer, better alternator (I already have this, but a mount would need to be made, and wiring beefed up
- Drag link replaced (old one is bent and unsalvageable)
- Some wiring redone in the engine bay, as I had to cut it
- New speedo cable made
It's all in the engine bay, nothing else really needs attention.
I hope that gives you an idea of what needs to be done-it's all stuff like that-nothing particularly herculean, save for the alternator.
If I were to have a shop do this, what kind of time would I be looking at? How much would I roughly be spending? I'm trying to have someone do it so I have a car when I move, instead of buying a beater and pouring money into that. I am already greatly familiar with how unpredictable these things go, and appreciate any information. I was also given two different shop rates, one at 75.00, and another at 90.

After getting ripped off once, I feel very confident in who I'll decide to do business with.
