Re: Have you done this yet?

I have a big stack of receipts. I'm sort of scared to add it all up.

Re: Have you done this yet?

I do not have a Pro Street..but I flat out stopped counting receipts.I can see why some would want to catalogue their parts for future referance though.Makes sence.

Re: Have you done this yet?

I think most projects start off with a list similar to yours. My list is a little different, I usually have it set up more as a shopping list with rounded off prices and part numbers. I mark the items off as I buy them. I make another "work" list and write down all the work I need to do and priotitize it, I mark things off as I go. This keeps you from getting side tracked when you have a lot of things to do.

That's an aweful lot of tire for a 28 spline axle. If you are starting from scratch on the rear end you might want to step up to 31, 33, or 35 splines. I assume with that 12:1 compression you plan to see more track time than street time.

Re: Have you done this yet?

No need to really add up the receipts the money is spent and the parts you bought are now worth a fraction of what you paid. I keep all my receipts but, have never added up any totals on any project I've built. I usually just hand over the stack/folder to the new owner.

People will ask how much do you have in it? I just say I don't know I never added up the receipts.

Re: Have you done this yet?

I have the list, not for tracking cost but so that I will know what I need for servicing. What brake pads to get, belts, hoses etc.

Re: Have you done this yet?

This is one of my old ones. I update it every year. I'm working on a new "service parts list" with exact part #'s for gaskets, etc...

Re: Have you done this yet?

It's scary just thinking about adding it all up. I've got over 14K in mine and I have'nt even got started, yet. I consider myself a smart shopper, but I have been known to pay too much for something I really want. I also realize I probably won't get what I'll eventually have in it, but I'll enjoy the car regardless of how much I sink into it. It's all about havin' fun whether it's on the cheap or not......

I may be old and slow, but ........what the heck was I gonna say?
