    I do have an idea...just not about how much it'll cost. but what you can do to get a better, more accurate quote from a professional...


    Call a shop and ask how much they charge for labor and tell them your plan. Unless you're going to do all the work yourself, the only real way to tell would be do it. Each shop will charge their own different flat rates, plus parts and taxes.

    Sorry to be blunt but there is no real way to give an accurate guestimate.
