There has been a few people asking for completed ones on here and I am not sure if DF offers that anymore based on the comments. Best thing would be to get in contact to them and serve as a third party. Maybe they could refer some business if they are not willing to complete it themselves
I actually talked to them about it when I picked my frame up. that would be a good way of going about it.

If you start building and selling complete vehicles, I think that opens you up to an entire new set of rules and regulations. Technically, DF never sold completely assembled Goblins. If they did, I think they would be considered a manufacturer and they'd have to abide by safety rules and other bureaucratic red tape.

If you build a Goblin yourself and then flip it "brand new", I think you'd have a very difficult time getting a decent ROI. Most of us spend way more on the build than what we'd ever get back out of it.
knowing what others have sold for assembled, there is pretty good margin. Df offered them for 27K base up to 32k turbo i believe.

Does that time include all your time? Donor search, donor teardown, parts prep/paint, etc? Or is is that assembly time only?
That is assembly only. We were at 62 hours including tear down and harness, a lot of that was due to doing the turbo which is not the same as the videos. There was a lot to research, but the people on the forums rocked it out for us.
 
Did you require the connector marked with power outlet? I have a few connectors that I am still trying to identify you labeled great im starting to do that was wondering if you could take a peak at my build thread.

Thanks

I kept it for the same reason as the others. To power my phone or tablet running GPS lap timing/analysis and dashboard apps.
Plus for any future power requirements.
