Approximate cost question? Molding...

Does anyone know how much it would approximately cost a shop (ie Azevedo motorsports in NJ) to mold Wald fenders into the body like Ryan's? A range would be more practical to ask for. I just really don't know what to expect if someone asked for this. Please assume the price includes cutting existing fenders and does not include the price of the wald flares.

Thanks guys....I appreciate the help,

Ryan's flares aren't molded Wald. They are hand crafted metal flares. As for price, every shop's price will vary.

Never believe any article, whether it's online or thru the magazine. Unless it is an article written personally by the owner, there's misinformation somewhere. I remember seeing photos of the progress of the body work and I am pretty sure it was a custom metal flare.

It's possible. If you're getting a complete repaint and a mold it would come close to it.
