Where Is My Project Headed?

By Crazyfast79TA

I'm having a conflict right now. This project started out like a ball of fire but it has gone up in smoke. I saved up money for a year. I had $1400 saved for this project. That wasn't going to be enough to get all the mechanical parts I needed along with all the materials for a good paint-job. I made the call to make it look good so cut the V-8 out of the plans and ordered the body panels I needed. I had enough left over to get the body-work materials and possibly paint, too. That money evaporated! Really! I don't know where it went! The parts I ordered on the 11th for $463 still haven't arrived! The rest of the money was supposed to buy tires, a used transmission, an exhaust repair job and the paint-job. But the money is GONE! I know this truck won't be done this summer now! It's going to have to be built one piece at a time. I'm not going to short-cut it now! I'm pissed about the money being gone and since it didn't get spent on my truck and I'm going to have to scrape money together now, and every penny will be made to count! I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do, but I'm going to do it!

Don't get too down on things. You still have the truck and a plan that works. Money and time are always a battle. I try to keep my porject money in cash stashed so I know if i raid it for something. Money in checking or even savings tends to get used for living. I know I can always go to my truck stash if I really need it too. I build my reserve by selling odd things off craigs list. You would be surised how much you probably have sitting around that you may never use. I sold an old Borg warner 4 speed for 300 bucks and it had been sitting outside for 20 yrs! Intakes, heads, valve covers or old building materials. When you get the funds just move them to your safe keeping spot. Remember you still have a good plan to work towards.
