Do body work myself? Or pay to have it done?

I am thinking about doing the body work on my car instead of paying to have it done. As you all know, because it is really expensive. Car is pretty solid. Has a little bit of rust that would need to be cut out and fixed. Also has a vinyl top so there could be some problems under there. Me and my friends are pretty good with mechanics but we have never done any kind body work.

Someone that will actually take the time to make it right will charge you $100-$150 an hour for countless amount of hours, and you probably wont see the car for some time, and end up paying a fortune when you get it back. With youtube, this forum, and some elbow grease (maybe a little trial and error ) you should be able to get something halfway decent done. If you are looking for show car quality work you need to leave it to the professionals though.
