Wuts goin on homies I don't have a low rider but I always wanted one and with some saving and planning I plan on buying or building one in the near future but I have a few questions.

1.Is it cheaper to buy or build a low rider cause I see low riders for sale on a few web sites and they not selling them for that much so I'm thinking something must be wrong with the car?

2.How much do it cost on average to build a low rider from hydraulics to paint to interior? I want Candi Blue paint,with white leather interior and f-b-s-s with 3 wheel motion hydraulics with a nice sounding stereo.

3.Can someone tell me the name of the half moon looking chrome headlight covers so I know what to look for when I start buying parts?

.4 Are Dayton wheels worth the price or can I get some off brand wheels to match the paint that just as good as Dayton's? I saw some powder coated wheels to match the paint on ebay with tires that were cheap.

5 If I buy a car to fix up what should be the first thing I do, then second, third ,and so on?

6. Can someone in the Houston area tell me some shops to get hydraulics,paint...etc.?

it depends what you want if you want the pride and respect build your own car you will spend more on it than buying one thats already jucied and ready to go .if you just want to save money and cruse by one fix up real riders fix up their own....

Thanx homie that's exactly what I told my wife , and I rather fix it up myself so I'll know what I have. Do anyone have an opinion on convertibles versus hardtops and what cars are true low riders cause I'm looking at a few Cadillacs , Impalas, and Caprices.

ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS LOWRIDERS TAKE TIME AND MONEY. YOU CAN GO TWO WAYS THE CHEAP WAY AND HAVE AN OK LOOKEN LOWRIDER OR YOU CAN SPEND SOME MONEY AND HAVE A KICK ASS LOWRIDER. YOU HAVE LOOK AROUND FOR THE BEST DEALS, DONT JUMP ON THE FIRST DEAL.

The decision to build one yourself is not always an easy one to make. There are a lot of rides out there built by their owner that could have been a lot better. If you can find a built ride at a reasonable price, then buy it if you like it. If you have no experience at it, sometimes that's the best way.

whats the average cost to build one cause Ive seen some for sale between 15,000 and 20,000 but I'm a lil worried about buying one already fixed up then cruising a month and the motor falls out..lol

first car I'd say buy a nice one already done..spend way less money...be able to get your ride on and then later look to upgrade..
