so my initial quote for the paint and body labor on my fox was $3000. considering i'm going to need another $3000 in parts to get it to where i'd want it to be both inside and out i'm looking at just buying a whole new car.

my budget for the restore was around $6000. after looking around i've found a few cars that are pretty nice already (body, paint, & interior) and have a good bit of performance mods already done. the restore on the 86 would be at or over 6000 and still wouldn't get me any performance mods at all.

looks like i'll be selling the 86 and getting either another fox or a 94-98 GT. .

Only if you love the car would you throw that kind of money into it. But, that being said, you'd know what you have, with the paint that you desire. There is much to be said about doing a car yourself (or even paying for to make it your style), but if there isn't anything holding you to that car, then obviously it's time to jump ship.
