Can do trades Aswell, but I never thought about the price honestly didn't figure anyone would even want to pay that much. It's a big job done correctly and depending on windows a pricy touch. I'd say starting would be 5k lifted welded and closed up no windows. I'm a licenced autobody integrity specialist, I have truck n coach mechanic tickets. Welding tickets and the shop to do it all.not to forget its 100% safe and will pass any integrity tests. I had mine looked at by fellow competitor of ours and they passed it with flying colors

They were sealed both sides, glued n screwed up. It holds good. Countersunk the stainless screws into the boards then I'll paint the heads with model paint to blend in

$5000 isn't far off - a quick calculation with pen, paper, and scratch marks, came up with $4000 and I'm pretty sure I'm shy

sealing both sides of the boards is a good practice - helps prevent the good side from breaking down
