I am putting some primer on mine today, hope-fully get it driveable by next weekend. Now ,I have $1800 in it right now. That does not include the wear and tear on the broom used to sweep the shop, the POPSICKELS that I passed out to the neighbor kids or when I burnt a hole in my tennis shoes. I understand what everyone is saying but if you take your time,are not locked into a specific build you can find deals everywhere. I bought a conversion van for $200, I sold the wheels and tires and kept the motor and trans, hauled the rest with some junk and got $183 back. Do I have $17 in the M/T or do I have $200 yet? It does have $210 worth of bolts,I run Wide five wheels because they were there,The battery and the steering box,master cyl. and driveshaft,were pirated from cars going to the crusher. The steering wheel was found laying on a friends bench,(Evinrude boat),two of the shocks were brand new garage sale,the fuel tank is a $5 air bubble from the swap meet, ect. There is a lot of labor doing it this way, it is much easier to call the 800 # and give them a credit card. I do not build my cars to please anyone but myself, your approval is not required. Some would say my car is junk, big deal! I do want to thank everyone on here for all the help in the past year or so, I only hope I can return the favor sometime.
