References first. Contract second. notarized. $6,000 payment made at completion. Set a maximum time to finish and if contract not 100% fulfilled , no payment is due and parts installed must remain. Monitor progress weekly. No contingency for hidden problems, either in money or time. Complete one project at a time i.e. do not permit total tear apart first. He'd be nuts to sign such a contract. Get a list of parts sources and quality of parts and his cost and nothing used. Demand a warranty, perhaps 100 operating (use) hours.

I'm new, but wanted to give my 2 cents... I have a completely gutted 62 Tradewind and plan on contracting out the rewiring. That alone I have been quoted $2200-$3000 by a few places. I realize that's not on your list of work to be done, but thought I would chime in with what little info I do have. Good luck!

Based on my experience, you found a shop that has a $5.00/hr rate and can get materials at a 66% discount off of retail.
