    That's probably mostly companies knowing its an insurance job and charging way more. Was the same thing on my truck when I was rear ended and pushed into another vehicle. Just needed two bumpers. Looked it all up and could order the stuff myself all brand new for around $400. Insurance wanted to total the truck (it is a 96 ranger with 350K on the clock) as it was gonna be $1200 to replace both bumpers. Ended up convincing them to cut me a check without totaling it and I went to the you pick yard and got both bumpers and a nice frame mount trailer hitch for $180 and returned the old bumpers afterwards for a $15 core charge.

    I finally got the wings painted yesterday. I cannot believe how much time I spent on them. I have literally painted whole cars faster.:ugh!:

    @Jetpainter ,
    You are a master of your craft. Those wings & stabs look AWESOME. I really like the color combination as well. If you have any of that blue & green paint left over, I'll send you my Illusion to assemble and paint. It won't take much. . . . . :laughing:.

    Beautiful!!! Do you plan on cut'n'buff? I envy your big shop, but how the heck do you keep paint dust off everything?

    There are a few dust nibs here and there. I will probably sand and buff some of it. The top wing is so easy to see on a biplane I'll more than likely polish it and a few other spots.

    Which takes longer, building a plane or painting it? :thumbsdown:

    Trick question, they take the same amount of time.............................

    And the funny thing is after all the hard work and time and regrets about even starting the project, all that disappears after the first successful flight.
