OH MAN THAT IS SICK! are you a paint and body guy? That paint looks so nice. You need to hang on to that just have the wife make you a little boy. Its shame they ladies don't like it but some little boy will love that thing. Welcome to the site you are just in time to join the new site.

thanks alot!! I do have a custom paint and body shop i run from my house and when i have no customer work i try to find fun stuff to tinker on, I dont know why I never did one of these sooner it was really nice to work on. This being my first one im not sure what i could ask for so if I just get back what i have into it id be happy. I got about $300 into the car and stereo and materials so I was thinking mabey $400? anyone got any ideas of what something like this is worth? I always have a hard time putting a price to my work... some of my big jobs i barely charge enough to cover my matereals.... rob
Custom stuff is all about finding the right buyer. You won't get rich modding power wheels I can tell you that. But if you consider a new one is 379 from amazon. 400 is more than fair. I am guessing it was used when you got it? Either way its worth more than a new one imo. If you are good with $400 I would probably ask 450 and put in your CL add the link to a new one for 379 at amazon. So people see what they are getting.
I agree with Blake, you'll never get rich from this hobby. That said, you should be able to "profit" enough from projects to help pay for the next one. Just take your labor costs out of the equation and you come out on top. :) I sold the Ducks one in my sig for a $100 profit. The Jeep is a personal vehicle and the other two were done for employees at cost. I am at work and can't see your video, but it sounds like it is quite the looker. You missed the boat on XMas sales, which tend to be higher than the rest of the year, but there are birthdays all year 'round!
